About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2014 with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education.
My name is Melissa Hamilton and I started teaching at SES in 2018. This will be my fifth year teaching! I am a graduate from the University of Alabama at Birmingham where I received my bachelors in Elementary Education. I have been married to my amazing husband Wesley Hamilton for eight years now. We have three year old twin girls named Haddie Jane and Finley June. I work hard to keep my students motivated and eager to learn! I am very excited about this 2019-2020 school year!
I have gained experience in many different grade levels as a teacher. To start off I taught preschool for several years. I then decided to get my degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. To begin my experience in public schools I was able to do my student teaching in a second grade classroom in Pell City. At that school I was asked to do a third grade maternity leave. After finishing up the maternity leave in Pell City, I did a second maternity leave at Margaret Elementary in a third grade classroom. I learned so much from my student teaching and the different maternity leaves. It was great experience to start my career. I got offered a job at Iola Roberts Elementary School for the following school year where I taught first grade for three years. I am currently going on my second year teaching kindergarten at Springville Elementary School!
