We Love Our Tiger Family
Amanda Plavich (Testimonial)

"Hammond Creek may be in its first year of existence, but it already feels like a family. The students and staff have faced unique challenges head on and I've been so impressed with the general perseverance displayed by everyone. There's nothing better than being a Hammond Creek Tiger!"

"It's difficult to narrow down my favorite thing about HCMS, as I work with great colleagues and awesome students. That said, the one aspect that is most unique, is the cultural diversity exhibited in our school. We are all exposed to many walks of life from multiple cultural backgrounds. I love having the opportunity to learn about my students and celebrate the things that are important to them. "

"I love how everyone is family, Doesn't matter what position you work, everyone is equal.  Every day I come to working knowing that I matter.  I know every day I am giving a nutritious meal that most of the students would never get at home and may be the only meal they get all day. Therefore I love what I do!"

Ashley McMath (Testimonial)

"What I love most about working at HCMS is my 7th graders and my team. Our students have created such a strong little community amongst themselves, and I get excited when I see how much they care about each other. They're very social creatures at this age and they've created such strong bonds with each other. It's wonderful to see and experience. 

The team of teachers I work with are the same way. There is a strong sense of community on our hall. Whether it's making each other laugh or supporting each other when we need to vent on tough days, everyone is always here for each other."

"I am excited to be at HCMS for its first school year opening. I'm happy to be part of the THUNDERCATS team in 7th grade and enjoy working with each teacher colleague. Its been awesome so far to collaborate with 7th science in creating engaging lessons for students. Administration has been extremely supportive through some touch moments. Plus, they have planned out, along with awesome literacy coaches, very engaging Literacy PD for teachers that have been very effective. It's a great school, with great teachers, administrators, and staff."
