About Miss H and Teaching Philosophy
Miss Hammershlag is extremely excited to start her second year as a 6th Grade Language Arts Teacher at FAMS! This year, she will also be teaching 8th Grade Journalism and is looking forward to discovering the news of the world with her students.
She received her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at Penn State University, and is now pursuing her Master's Degree in Literacy and Special Education through the State University of New York at New Paltz. Prior to teaching at FAMS, Miss H taught 6th Grade Language Arts and Social Studies at a private school in West Orange, NJ.
As a teacher, she loves helping each of her students grow academically and personally by setting high expectations for her students. Meaningful learning will occur when everyone works together. When she is not teaching, Miss H enjoys spending time with her friends and family, dancing, and reading Young Adult novels.
