Mrs. Kristen Buck

Kindergarten is going to be a BLAST in 2019-2020! 

I got married over the summer. My husband is David Buck. Together, we have 3 amazing children. Destin (22), Tyler (18), and Jada (12).

I obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina in Aiken and my Masters degree from Southern Wesleyan University. Having been born and raised in North Augusta, and having attended Hammond Hill Elementary myself, I am very honored to have the opportunity to teach here. I am entering my 18th year of teaching, all at Hammond Hill Elementary. 

Hammond Hill is a Leader in Me school, which means we will be focused on practicing and living by the 7 habits: 1. Be proactive 2. Begin with the end in mind 3. Put first things first         4. Think win win 5. Seek first to understand and then to be understood 6. Synergize 7. Sharpen the saw

Our class mission is to synergize each day to learn, to be good friends, and to be proactive leaders.

Please feel free to contact me if you ever have questions and/or concerns. You can contact me by sending a note in your child's folder, calling the school office at 803-442-6170, or emailing me at
