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.

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
