“I look forward to working with Fabiola as part of the administrative teams at her school,” said Superintendent Tim Scott. “Fabiola has been a wonderful leader in our Exceptional Students Services department, and I know her experience in advocating for students and families will be a tremendous asset to the administrative team at Hammond Creek Middle School.”
