Welcome to 2nd Grade! I am very excited about working with you and your child to make this year a success. My name is Tammy Hales.  I have been working in the Gordon County School System for the last 12 years. I have worked in Pre-K, ESS, and the computer lab. This will be my third year teaching 2nd grade.

I graduated with honors from Covenant College, in Lookout Mountain, Georgia, on December 18, 2014. While at Covenant, I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education and received my certification in grades pre-k through fifth grade which makes me highly qualified to teach your child.

I have been married for 21 years. We have two amazing children. Our oldest, Alex, graduated two years ago. Our daughter, Ana, is in the 11th grade.

Your child is very important to me, and I want him or her to learn a lot and enjoy 2nd grade. Please feel free to contact me by note or e-mail ( should you have any questions or concerns regarding your child. If you need to see me for a conference, please remember to make an appointment so we may talk with no interruptions, and I can give you my full attention!


Stay connected with Mrs. Hales' classroom! I'm using ClassDojo to keep parents in the loop this year! I'll share photos from class, important updates and wonderful moments – like when students work hard and help each other.


There is no job better than teaching. Each day is different, and children are a constant source of amazement. They are fun to work with, and watching them learn and grow is extremely rewarding. Every day is an adventure!
