Hello, my name is Mary Hammonds.  I have been teaching at Eastside Elementary for 11 years.    Prior to moving to Eastside,  I taught fifth grade Language Arts/Reading and Science in Oxford, Alabama, for 24 years.  I left Oxford and moved to Pleasant Valley High School in Calhoun County, Alabama,  to teach 6th grade math. After two years of teaching sixth grade,  I had a friend that was teaching in Rockmart,  and she asked me to come and ride with her.  It was a great move for me!  I liked everything being new and the challenge of getting to know a whole new community.  Eastside Elementary has been a great place to teach children. I like the community's love for their school and the people I have worked with are exceptional.

I have always tried to do my very best in teaching children what they need to know to be successful.  I love seeing the look on a child's face when they discover "they get IT"!  I was a Reading teacher for many years, but I have had the opportunity to teach math for the last couple of years.  Common Core has been a challenge, but I have loved it!  I can't wait to meet my new students for the 2017-2018 school year.
