Mrs. Taylor Hammill
I am a 6th grade math teacher for the Mars Hill Mountain Lion team. I attended Mars Hill University and played collegiate softball for two years before transferring to University of North Carolina Wilmington. I graduated from there with a degree in Elementary Education in 2015. I taught for one year in elementary school before coming to MPMS. This is my seventh year in 6th grade and I love it!
I am from Mount Pleasant and grew up attending the Mount Pleasant schools, so I love that I am helping the next generation of students enjoy the great atmosphere that Mount Pleasant brings to their upbringing and education. I have a 2.5 year old son, Levi, with another little boy due in December. My husband, Bradley, also a Mount Pleasant native, is a teacher/Athletic Director/coach at Winkler Middle. We are HUGE sports fans and try to go to as many Florida State, Chapel Hill, and Atlanta Braves games when possible. We also enjoy spending time in the mountains and at the beach.

If you would like to meet with your student's teachers, you must call Mrs. Taylor in the office at 704-260-6530. Meetings cannot be scheduled through emails or written notes to individual teachers.
It is always the student's responsibility to ask each teacher for his/her make up work upon returning to school. Refer to the student handbook in the agenda for more details on this topic.
Individual extra credit is NOT offered. All students are given the chance to add 5 points to their unit tests by completing study guides. I try to offer extra credit assignments to all students a few times per year.
