Hello! My name is Tina Hamel and I’m thrilled to say this is my 14th year teaching high school science. I grew up in Chicopee, Massachusetts and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Bay Path University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from The University of Massachusetts Amherst. I have worked in the life insurance, medical, and juvenile district court systems. After serving over four years as a police officer in the state of Massachusetts I came to the realization that I had a passion for teaching. This became apparent from teaching an introductory to Psychology course at UMASS while finishing up my degree.

I enjoy cooking, reading, watching movies, sports and spending time with my husband Michael and family.
