Welcome to Mrs.Hammond's Class! I'm so excited to be teaching kindergarten at Clear Creek! Clear Creek has been my home for several years now.  I grew up in this area and am married and have three grown children who are also in education. My daughter Ashley is also a kindergarten teacher in this district and my daughter Katie is an elementary art teacher in the Shawnee Mission District. My son Josh teaches high-risk children in a private school.  We are a teaching family!   My husband works for an insurance company.  I have two spoiled little dogs, Winnie and Abby that live with us. I am happy to say that I also have an amazing little grandson named Parker, who is the light of my light!

This is my 2nd  year teaching kindergarten at Clear Creek! I student taught in 2nd grade here where I had a fabulous mentor and soon I fell in love with Clear Creek and the De Soto School District. I graduated in December of 2018 from Pittsburg State University with a Bachelors in Education. After graduating, I accepted a long-term substitute position in kindergarten right here at Clear Creek. Teaching is a passion that I have had since I was young and I could not see myself doing anything else! I am so lucky to be given the opportunity to work with such amazing students, staff, and families. In my free time I enjoy walking my dog, spending time with family and friends, and reading.

Hello! I am so excited to be here at Clear Creek! It is my 2nd year teaching kindergarten in De Soto. I started my career as a hair stylist and did hair for ten years. I have always wanted to teach and finally mustered the courage to go back to school for my degree a few years back. I now have my bachelor’s in elementary education and a teaching license for K- 6. My next goal is to get my Master's degree. I completed practicums in Turner and Spring Hill and student taught in Blue Valley. In addition to teaching kiddos, I love spending time with my family, dog, and boyfriend. I am a “foodie” and love cooking new things and trying new restaurants in the area. I also enjoy outdoor activities and walking my dog.

Hi, I'm Mrs. Taylor!
I am so excited to be a part of the CCE community! This is my second year teaching in De Soto but my 7th year in the profession. I got my degree from Emporia State University and went to work for Olathe for 5 years. My favorite subject to teach is reading. I just love the growth you can see in a student when they read! 
I live in Gardner with my husband, Adam. We have two girls, Haley (7) and Paige (4). We also have two dogs named Ava and Eli as well as 10 chickens!
Some of my favorite things to do outside school are playing board games, going on long walks, and relaxing outside. 
I can't wait to meet you!!
