Southside Elementary School special education teacher Jamie Hamby was honored with the Remember Your Why Award at Monday’s Board of Education meeting. Her nomination said that she goes above and beyond to see students succeed. One student loved fishing so she bought rubber fishing worms to help him learn to count. She always smiles and greets students when walking through the halls, spreading joy to students as well as staff members. Mrs. Jamie has helped with students who have had emotional issues returning to school. She also builds strong relationships with her parents so the lines of communication are always open when tough situations arise. She is a huge reminder that Hopkins County Schools LOVES their students and families!
When asked her to tell her “why,” she responded, “My ‘why’ is because I love the kids.” Congratulations, Jamie Hamby!! #TeamHopkins
