|Our teachers at Hammond
High School turned out to be rather outstanding!
One never knows if they have had a good education or a bad education until
after they graduate, go out into the world and compare their knowledge with the knowledge of those around you, and then it is too late.
As a measure of dedication to the profession, many of the teachers who were on board at HHS in 1944 (according to the 1944 Dunes) were still at HHS when we were there. See how many of the teachers in this 1944 HHS photo you can identify...
