During the coronavirus pandemic, teachers have had to make some major adjustments as they continue to teach their students virtually.

Stephanie Harris Hamm, a 2nd grade teacher at Hyde Grove Elementary on the Westside of Jacksonville, has embraced the challenge.

In fact Harris Hamm says she believes she’s finally walking in her purpose after working in the corporate world for 22 years. In addition to teaching, Harris Hamm is a photographer and an event planner.

Harris Hamm says she earned her degree in education back in 2017 and started her teaching career in 2019.

“Your drive is different. It's like not even having to go to work. You're going to serve a purpose. You're going to inspire. You're going to encourage and for me to be there for the young people it just fuels my drive. I tell you we are there to inspire them but they inspire me each day," she said.

If you've got something good or know someone who is doing something and you would like for Sports Director, Chris Porter to recognize them, you can send him an email to chporter@firstcoastnews.com or a tweet to @chrisporterfcn.
