Mrs. Brittany Hammond

Hey, My name Brittany Hammond and I am a first year 5th grade teacher at Ben Hill Elementary School and I absolutely LOVE it. I graduated from Fitzgerald Highschool way back in 2004, after graduation I attended ABAC in the Fall. After attending ABAC for a year, I transferred to Georgia Southwestern in Americus, Ga. where I received my Bachlor's degree in Early Childhood Education. It was my dream to be a teacher, so I was very discouraged after graduating because I had no job prospects. Teaching jobs were very hard to come by, especially with it being in the middle of the year. Fortunaley, I was very blessed, and was able to begin a long term sub job teaching 1st grade that January. After completing that year, I was offered a job teaching 1st grade at Ben Hill Primary where I stayed for 11 years. While teaching at BHP, I continued my education and earned a Master's degree in curriculum and instruction, and a Specialist degree in Early Childhood Education both from Gerogia Southwestern as well.

I have been married to Taylor for almost 10 years, and we have two boys, Rhodes & Liam. Rhodes is 8, and Liam is 4. Rhodes attends school at BHP, and Liam attends the Pre-K. In my spare time (which I'm not sure what that is anymore! LOL) I enjoy spending time with my family,being outside with my boys, watching Rhodes play sports, decorating, redoing old furniture, thrift store shopping, cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs, and looking for Indian Artifacts on our farm.
