Dr. Leanne Hanson

In Her Own Words: “In a 1988 letter to the director of the Vatican Observatory, Saint John Paul II stated, ‘Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.  Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish.’  The intricacy and beauty of God’s design for nature, and in particular the function of our cells, leaves me awestruck.  I hope to share this excitement for science with my students at JP the Great High School.  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach in an environment which embraces the study of science within the framework of our faith.”
