Mr. Troy Hammon

Welcome, take a seat and let’s jump into today’s topic; should students participate in simulations?  As the sponsor of Diplomatic Corps (which includes Model UN, WorldQuest and World Food Prize), the answer is YES!  I have a passion for Geography and Environmental Studies and weave both into my lessons.  

Once you have entered my classroom, Global Mindedness, International Relations and World History will infect you and fill you with the desire to simply know more.  A major focus of all courses will be on taking local action for the UN SDG’s (https://sdgs.un.org/goals).   Spring 2020 brings the start of my 6th semester at SHS and year #24 as a high school Social Studies teacher.  

I originally hail from Bristol, in northern Indiana where I was active in 4-H, especially rocketry, and played percussion up through my years at Ball State.  Together with Mrs. Hammon, Kindergarten teacher at CFI 84, we have a cat, two children and two grandboys.  M

y free time is currently spent studying the UN SDG’s and the prevention of genocide as well as catching up on building a stack of battleship models and playing the Axis & Allies board game.  I recently retired from coaching and refereeing soccer.  I am active in global and environmental education in Indiana and volunteer with Indianapolis Sister Cities Teacher and Student Outreach and give back to my profession by serving on the boards of Indiana Council for the Social Studies and the Geography Educators Network of Indiana.
