    Educational Philosophy

        I believe all students can learn. I believe all students should be able to have their educational goals met each day that learning is occurring. They should have the basic foundational skills that will equip them as they choose their career path for life. Finally, I want all students to be productive individuals that can think, learn, and be creative in their style of learning. Every child has a desire to learn and achieve.

    Welcome  Fabulous Smiling Hornets of Hampton Elementary! My name is Carol Craven-Olthoff. I am so happy to be teaching and helping your child this year.
      I had the honor of being named Teacher of the Year for 2008 by the Hampton staff members. It was a privilege and wonderful opportunity bestowed on me by my fellow colleagues.
      I have been educating students for 38 years. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grade. I taught my first five years in a private church school, then moved  into public education. I have taught 10 years in Clayton County and 23 years in Henry County. This is my 39 years of seeing students learn and set goals for their future.
      I am a true GA peach. Born in Atlanta, GA. I lived in Hapeville, Georgia, until I moved to  Henry County about 23 years ago. I love Hampton as a community and Hampton Elementary is a great place for achieving the foundational skills. I am always excited about being a Hampton Hornet.
      I have high expectations for my students. I expect respect and responsibility from them at all times. I am constantly looking for new ways to inspire and motivate them to achieve their best.
     I got married on June 6, 2009 at a beach wedding in Florida. My children are the students I educate, motivate, and encourage each year.
      We are going to have a great year at Hampton. So remember to smile and laugh when you can.
