Hamilton-Holmes Middle School
Employee of the Month
Hamilton Holmes Middle School is proud to announce Rachel Abbott as December’s Employee of the Month. She is always smiling and is a great advocate for the arts! Many of our students frequently express how much they love band this year. Rachel worked very hard to put on a beautiful winter concert, showcasing her students' learning. She did this as a brand new young teacher, without the foundation of an established music department. She puts in long hours, even when it is no longer marching season, as she builds up her band program from scratch. Rachel doesn't complain and rarely asks for help as she tries to tackle the challenges of being a new band director. Rachel steps up to every responsibility and is there to support the other members of our HHMS team. We are very proud to have her as part of our Viking Team!
