    The Autobiography of Coach Hammack... 

    I started teaching in the fall of 2001.  My first job was at Chisholm Trail Middle School in Round Rock ISD.  I then transfered to Round Rock High School and taught chemistry and biology until 2006.  At that time I went into the private sector and worked until I had the oportunity to come to Benold in the fall of 2008.  I have been coaching and teaching math ever since and enjoy GISD very much.
    I graduated from Gatesville High School and attended Texas State University-San Marcos. I earned my B.S. Degree in Exercise and Sports Science and a minor in chemistry.  I hold certifications in math, chemistry, life science, and p.e. for grades 6-12.
    I am extremely busy with my two boys, Cason and Carter, who attend Benold Middle School and Frost Elementary School.  My wife, Kendra, is a registered nurse.  We enjoy camping with friends, watching the Texas Rangers, Green Bay Packers football, and gaming at the house.
