Ms. Hannah LaFlamme
Hello! and welcome back!!! My name is Hannah LaFlamme and I am teaching grades 3-5 EC -self contained this year at Polenta. This is my second year teaching. Last year I taught K-5 Self contained and it was a great experience. I have a bachelor’s degree in early childhood/ childhood education and I just graduated in 2018 with a Master’s in Special Education (both from Roberts Wesleyan College, Rochester, NY). I moved from upstate New York to Benson and have lived here for almost 4 years now.
I love to sing . I am a great cook/baker and I like fishing and kayaking in my free time. Teaching is my passion and I hope to make a big difference and impact with my students this year and for many more years to come.
