I was a student in Darin's class about internships and careers in the Winter of 2012 at BYU-Idaho. Attending Darin's class was a great experience for me because of the projects that he assigned. Unlike so many of my English classes, the projects assigned made me really think about what I am going to do with my life and how I'm going to do it.
I found it very valuable to learn about setting ethical standards in the workplace, as well as the way that idea maps can be used to make connections between different concepts. Darin was always happy to help us students with any assignment, which was especially helpful since the class was challenging. I really appreciated the discussions he began in class.

What PhDs in English Say About Darin L. Hammond
Years ago Darin was a student of mine, one of the finest writers I have ever seen in my 35+ years as a university writing instructor. Darin's expertise as a writer is germane to this recommendation because Darin went on to become an instructor of writing, and we are now in the same English department, working as colleagues.
I have seen Darin teach, and I can confidently affirm that the sensitivity to audience and the creativity of thought which made him an excellent writer also make him a wonderful teacher. He provides students with the tools they need to succeed in their goals to think more deeply and to succeed in improving their communication skills.
Mr. Hammond enrolled in a graduate seminar I taught two years ago on Darwinian approaches to literature and completed outstanding work in every way. His participation in class discussion was a model for students and instructor alike--curious and good-natured, but critical at the same time--and both of his papers connected the most intricate of details in selected primary texts to the larger themes of the course. I have never seen Mr. Hammond teach, but I have every reason to believe he brings the same combination of intellectual rigor and sensitivity for others to his own classroom.
As a colleague I know him as both a dedicated teacher and friend.Darin maintains currency in his discipline by attending conferences, presenting papers at CCCC for the past several years. He collaborated on the curriculum for a new, advanced writing course for construction management majors and has helped pilot a new Humanities course for Foundations (GE).
His professional development enriches his scholarship and translates immediately to the classroom, a direct benefit to his students. As a person Darin is an attentive listener, always calm and engaged with those around him. As a professional he continually seeks opportunities to grow and improve. As a scholar he is an innovative thinker and accomplished writer. He has my highest, unqualified recommendation.
Additionally, Darin is a team player in the workplace and cares very much about the success and happiness of his colleagues. He is a good friend and makes work enjoyable for those around him. He is an incredible asset to the English Department here at BYU-Idaho.
Lastly, Darin has a work ethic that is without equal. On many occasions I have arrived at work early or stayed late, thinking that I was really putting in a hard day's work only to find Darin's office light already on or his vehicle still in the parking lot.
We give each other book recommendations, talk about the books we read, and try to keep up with each other's family life. Now that I am a professor I try to emulate many things I learned from Darin's teaching style - his openness, his humor, and his ability to make learning fun. In short, I feel that his content knowledge and wonderful personality made Darin a strong addition to the English Department at Brigham Young University - Idaho.
