My children both attend Hammond elementary and I volunteer a lot of my time there, getting to see a lot of the daily workings of the school.
I felt like I had to give the support teachers at Hammond a huge shout-out. They are amazing.
A lot of the time they are so engaged with their students that they don’t know anyone is around to see or hear them. But I do see and hear a lot.
They are so nurturing and kind, doing what is in the best interest of that child in that moment – even when its not the easiest route.
These support teachers have an extremely difficult job and they do it with compassion, empathy, intention and confidence. They are a huge asset to the teachers, students, parents and administration at Hammond.
