Samien Hasanali

Hi! My name is Samien Hasanali.  I am very excited to be a part of the Canyon Ridge Family. 

I grew up in San Antonio and graduated from Reagan High School. I went to UTSA and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum & Instruction.  I am certified to teach Early Childhood through fourth grade.  This is my first year at Canyon Ridge but I have been involved with education for the last ten years.

I have two daughters - a 7 and 2.5 year old that keep me on my toes!  My daughter and nephew attend Canyon Ridge and are in 2nd grade!

I believe in creating a family-like environment in my classroom where we all support one another.  The classroom should be a safe and happy learning environment for all learners.
