Jane was born Jane Sellers in 1927. She was born in Pomeroy, Ohio- town on the Ohio River that was eight miles long and half a mile wide. After graduating from East Grand Rapids High School in 1944, she attended MacMurray College in Jacksonville, IL where she earned her BA in Liberal Arts in 1948. Then, one year later, she received a Master's in Education and her teacher's certificate from the University of Southern California.
In 1949, she got her first teaching job in Victorville, CA where she stayed there until January 1961, when she moved to Glendale, California and taught at Toll Junior High School. She became a Fellow and co-director in the UCLA Writing Project. Ms. Hancock taught until she was eighty-eight, when an illness forced her to retire in 2015. Currently, she gets great satisfaction from leading classes for local writers once a week and another one for teachers which meets once a month. Jane is widowed with five grown sons, many grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
