Ms. Virginia Hammond
Welcome to Aiken Elementary School and first grade! This is going to be an exciting year for all of us. I am eager to meet you and get to know you and your student. I would like for you to get to know me also.
I graduated from Charleston Southern University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1981, a Master in Religious Education from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2004 and a Master in Education/Early Childhood from the Univeristy of Phoenix in 2014. This is my fifth year teaching at Aiken Elementary; my first year in 1st grade. I taught four year in kindergarten, served as an assistant in the kindergarten classroom for five years and did my student teaching here at Aiken Elementary. It was my heart's desire to teach here. I have loved being a part of this school community.
Asking questions, solving problems, discussions, research and discovery are all a part of instruction. In this classroom discussions and sharing of ideas will lead the learning process. The positive in this is that it can be done in large groups, small groups, or students paired together.
I believe all children can learn and learning should be exciting and fun. We will all shine this year as we walk the red carpet of learning.
If you have any question or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 803-641-2740 between 7:30 and 2:30 (call and leave a message and I will return your call when I have a break or after school.)
