About the Teacher
Welcome to Hernando Hills! My name is Pam Strong. I teach special education here at the hills. I look forward to sharing this year with you and your child. Though this year comes with many different challenges, we will view them as "adventures." We will breath in every minute of learning possible, while also focusing on safety!
A little about me: In 2015, I began working at Hernando Hills Elementary School (go Tigers!) as a special education teacher. I have previously taught in Tennessee and Arkansas. My husband, Tom, and I live in Olive Branch. We have one daughter, Olivia, who is 14 years old. As Olivia likes to say, she also has two puppy siblings, Cash and Rebel.
I believe each and every child, no matter what their level of functioning, has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. As a special needs teacher, my responsibility is to help all exceptional children develop their potential by believing in them as a capable individual. It is my duty to assist them in expanding their knowledge and skills to the fullest extent possible to ensure they become as independent and productive as they can.
