4th Grade TeacherEmail Me
Salutations Sun Valley Academy-Avondale family! My name is Mrs. Hammack and this year I have the privilege of teaching your 4th-grade scholars Math & Science. Even if you are not in 4th grade, I do want to let you know I am still here for you. 😊
This year marks 4 consecutive years being an Arizona educator and rounding my total to seven years in the classroom. My experience ranges from starting as a daycare assistant when I was in the 5th grade, tutoring elementary scholars during my high school years, and post-degree teaching an array of grades from TK-6th grade.
This career has many moments that can make on scratch their head as to what really led them here. For me, I became an educator because I had several strong teachers in my past, especially my 5th-grade teacher Mrs. Geraths. She became terminally ill that year but never let up on providing quality instruction to us GATE scholars. With that being said, no matter what I am going through, once I enter Sun Valley my teacher hat comes on and my scholars’ educational success becomes my driving force to get me through it.
Sun Valley Academy acknowledges the students as “scholars” which projects “high standards and high achievement” mentality. Scholars are here to ensure they conquer concepts, ask questions, and keep striving for more. Sun Valley Academy is a place for growth, strengthening relationships and filling the halls with genuine love.
