Mrs. Hamilton Sixth Grade English/Language Arts

This is my 18th year teaching here at Lake Forest Middle School. I have taught ELA in 6-8 grade, focusing on sixth grade for the past four years. It is my goal to help all students to reach their full potential and to help them realize the unique talents they possess.  
I was a Trewhitt Cherokee in the 1980s and truly enjoy being part of the faculty of my "Junior High" alma mater.  I graduated from Bradley High School in 1986, from UTC in 1991 with a B.A. in English and Communication, and from Cumberland University in 2005 with an M.A. in Curriculum Design.

Have fun.  (From this site, find the Zinc icon for Zinc articles and vocabulary activities.)  (When you get to this site, go to library to choose your articles. This isn't an assignment.
