ISS Instructor

Hello, my name is John Hampton and I am the In School Suspension Instructor here at Discovery Middle School.  I have held this position for the past 6 years and I thoroughly enjoy making a positive impact in the lives of the Discovery Middle School student body.  I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Science Degree in Secondary Education/History.

On a more personal note, my wife and I are the proud parents of two sons, Zacchaeus and Johnathan.  In my spare time, I like to read, play sports, and exercise, and spend valuable family time with my wife and sons.  I am also a fan of SEC football, the Tennessee Titans, and the Miami Heat (NBA).


1.        I will not eat, drink, or chew while in ISS.

14.      I understand that while in ISS, I will finish all work given by my teachers.  They are giving this work not as punishment but to keep me from falling behind in class.  I will complete each assignment before starting a new one.

15.      I will not talk to anyone while going to and in the restroom.

16.      I am able to get a drink of water after I use the restroom and only after.

18.      I will line up in a single file line and walk to the lunchroom in a single file line.

19.      I will not talk while going to and from the lunchroom.
