Associate Director of Royce Learning Center / Principal of Chatham Academy
Carolyn Hannaford has forty years of experience working with children with learning disabilities and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. She received her formal training at Stetson University and The University of Virginia. Her previous experience in public and private education laid the foundation for a passion in providing structured education for students with learning disabilities. In 1978, Carolyn moved to Savannah to become the head of Chatham Academy. She arrived to an empty building and the daunting task of starting a school in three weeks. With the help of a supportive Board of Directors, Carolyn started Chatham Academy with seven students. Together, Carolyn and Cindy Hamilton developed curriculum, taught classes, and learned along with the students. Over the years, she developed a strong philosophy of caring and educating each student according to their needs. Carolyn works tirelessly to make Chatham Academy a premier institution for children with learning differences who need a different way of teaching in order to achieve academic and personal success. She has travelled throughout the country as a guest lecturer, author, and community activist in this field.CLOSE
