My name is Scott Hammonds and I am glad to be a part of the staff at Madison Elementary. I have taught in Des Moines Public Schools as a classroom and ELL teacher. I graduated from Iowa State University and still proudly support my beloved Cyclones.
I enjoy spending time with my two amazing children and stay busy attending their various activities.
It’s a gift to be able to come to work every day and do my part to provide an equitable, excellent, and enjoyable education to students.
Hello! I am fortunate to work with students in kindergarten through 5th grade on reading, writing, listening, and speaking in English. I love seeing how students grow in their abilities and confidence from year to year. I have a bachelor’s degree from Coe College in Cedar Rapids and a master’s from Drake University. My areas of specialty are reading and English as a second language. I taught English abroad for 3 years before coming to Iowa, and I’ve worked in several buildings with Des Moines Public Schools. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I look forward to working with you!
