Christopher Hammond

Chris is a wonderful special education teach. From the time I met him he wanted to help our youth succeed. He has a passion for those who are under-privileged and that transcends into his daily work. Chris started out at Shaw Elementary where he spent 5 years teaching kids who didn't have the support at home to be successful and relied on him to be their role model. Through all the fights at school being kicked bitten having to get a tetanus shot multiple lockdowns and war wounds Chris never lost site of the goal.... the children. During this time Chris and his partner decided to adopt a child out of the foster system adding to Chris' nurturing gift. When an opportunity arose Chris transferred to another school closer to his home where he continues to promote learning. He is currently the lead special education teacher at Clark elementary where he allows his kids the best environment to learn. Just recently Chris re-did his classroom to help his kids with Autism and ADHD focus. He purchased standing desk sensory items and even desks with swinging footrest. He is passionate about his kids and all kids getting the education they desire. I cannot think of anyone more deserving than Chris for this award.
