Hannah Tostensen

retired in June of 2004 from a twenty-seven year career in education, the first half spent as a classroom teacher in Coastal Georgia. In the latter half, Hannah held high-level leadership positions in educational administration that included a seven-year tenure as Superintendent of the McIntosh County Public Schools and a three-year stint in Atlanta with the University System of Georgia/Board of Regents. She earned graduate degrees in her field, including a doctorate in Curriculum and Instructional Supervision from the University of Georgia.
An ardent animal advocate since childhood, Hannah began putting her passion to work for them in1994 when she co-founded HART of Darien-McIntosh County (Humane Animal Resource Team, Inc.), a local grassroots animal welfare organization. In 2007, she co-founded GVAW (Georgia Voters for Animal Welfare), a statewide network of citizens using their voices and their votes to improve animal protection legislation.
...
From 2007-2012, Hannah served as a volunteer Board and Executive Committee member for the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia. She resigned that appointment to focus her energy on HART, who took over the day-to-day operations of McIntosh County Animal Services in Darien on October 1, 2012. HART's overarching goals in this challenge are to check companion animal birthrates, reduce shelter intakes, gradually end the killing of healthy, treatable animals and serve as a resource/education center countywide.
Hannah has lived on The Ridge, an historical community located three miles outside of Darien, Georgia, in the same home for over forty years. She has infected her husband of thirty-three years, Andy, with her passion for animals and they currently care for nine rescued mutts and a once-feral cat who sleeps with them every night!

Hannah Tostensen, superintendent of schools in McIntosh County, GeorgiaHannah Tostensen, superintendent of schools in McIntosh County, Georgia, insists on high standards for both students and teachers as she seeks to improve academic achievement in the county.

"You can't just continue to fly by the seat of your pants," said McIntosh County Superintendent Hannah Tostensen.

Trust, yes, but also the kind of determination that the Southeast Georgia P-16 Regional Council found in people at the grass-roots level in McIntosh County, in coastal Georgia -- people like Hannah Tostensen, superintendent of schools since 1992, and Caroline Pitts, curriculum director at McIntosh County Academy.
...
Tostensen also passionately believes that rigorous standards are the only way to narrow the widening gap in academic achievement between disadvantaged and middle-class students.Tostensen's greatest challenge has come not from folks resisting higher standards, but from parents who do not trust her to raise standards enough -- for African American children.Such distrust echoes a long history of racial tension and accommodation in McIntosh County.African American activists who feel they have fought hard to force the system to expect more of black boys than going into the Army have had heated confrontations with Tostensen, who is white.
The issues seem to boil down to distrust.Many of the 18 teachers who left or were dismissed in the last few years were African American, and Tostensen won't hire other black teachers, despite pressure from parents to do so, until she finds candidates who meet her standards.

I'm not comfortable with it , she said.
How do you teach children not to be violent and not to strike when you strike them.That's a no-brainer to me..
