Mrs. Chastidy Hammond

Hi! My name is Mrs. Hammond and I am so happy to call Schiff my home! This is my 9th year teaching 3rd grade at Jan Schiff. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor's in Biology & Math. A few years later, I earned my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Houston Baptist University. When I am not teaching or planning fun lessons for our class, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love sports, going on road trips, having movie nights, playing games, Christmas, and hanging out at the beach. I live here in Sienna with my husband Richard, our amazing 14-year-old daughter Reagan, and our very busy 5-year-old son Carter. I am happy to be a part of the amazing Sienna community doing a job I love. 

Teaching is my absolute passion. I could not imagine myself doing anything else. I consider myself very lucky because I am blessed to have a job that does not feel like a “job”.  In my classroom, I promote an atmosphere of safety, trust, and respect.  One of the most important goals for me as a teacher is to build a community in my classroom.  Making my diverse students feel like a united group of individuals who care for each other and work together is what I strive for as each new school year begins.  I believe in structure, great classroom management, building relationships, and making learning fun every day! I also believe that communication is the key to a great parent-teacher relationship. I encourage parents to contact me if they have any questions or concerns at any time. I will do my part by keeping the lines of communication flowing through our 3rd Grade Newsletter and Weekly emails.

I am absolutely THRILLED to spend the next year learning and growing with you! It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures. Welcome to the "Hammonator" Team!
