Ms. Altia M. Hamm


My Name is Ms. Altia Hamm. I have been teaching at Timrod since 2016. I love the sixth grade, and it is a privilege for me to have your child in my class this year.  I take great pride in our school here at Timrod. I love the sense of community within the school, and that is what makes us so unique. Establishing long lasting relationships between the students and staff is a vital lifeline here. My philosophy is that if students feel a sense of belonging, they are more apt to learn and grow. High expectations and adhering to the goals that have been set for each student is what drives success in my classroom. We are all dedicated here to the success and growth of your child.

I graduated from Francis Marion University in fall 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I was born in Philadelphia, PA, and raised in Florence, SC. I am a graduate of West Florence High School.

My interests include traveling, shopping, watching DIY videos, and spending time with my family and friends. 

Please call the school anytime if you would like to speak with me, or set up a conference. If you would like to send me an email, free at any time. My email address is
