Parents and teachers stay positive about future of Price Lab


Teachers at Malcolm Price Laboratory School are recruited to teach at the school. They are some of the best and most innovative teachers in the state.

Holly and Joshua Hanna were recruited from Muscatine to be teachers at price lab. Holly is a teacher of Language Arts and Joshua is the Technology Coordinator for the school.

Even though the move meant a pay cut they knew this was the place for them and their family.

"This is the platform for us to make the biggest impact and that's what we're passionate," said Joshua Hanna.

The Hanna's four children all attend Price Lab. When they decided to move, they were worried about the adjustment their older children, one of which is 14 and the other is 9, would have to make, but those worries soon eased.

"They could see the good that was going to come out of it," Joshua Hanna said.

"It amazes us what they have learned in one year, especially in terms of technology. They are so technology savvy and this school fuels that," Holly Hanna said.

With the future of the school being questioned the Hannas are trying to stay positive.

"I feel really good about where we're at and our decision to come here and the future of this building and the future of UNI's teaching program because that's what we're known for," said Joshua Hanna said.

The Hannas say Price lab also gives students the chance to get more involved in their community. A number of just their projects involve Cedar Falls community Main Street, the city library, and even other countries around the world.
