Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cristy Hamblen

Dear Students and Parents,


I began my career at Belleview Elementary in 2003 as a teacher's assistant while I attended St. Leo University to earn a degree in Elementary Education. In June of 2005, Ms. Conner (our formal principal) called me on my wedding day as I was preparing to walk down the aisle to tell me I would be teaching 5th grade in August. What an exciting day!


Seventeen years later, my husband and I have been blessed with our daughter Lily and son Eric. With all the school activities and daily adventures, it's sometimes hard to find a moment of peace!


After many years in upper grades, I am now teaching second grade!  I am so happy we are providing MCPSonline so students can continue learning in developmentally appropraite ways, while being mindful of their health and wellness.  While we may not be physically together, I look forward to seeing my students smiling faces and connecting with all of you!
