Hello, Sharks! I am Anissa Hamilton and I am so excited to be a 3rd grade teacher at Chaparral! This will be my 14th year as a teacher. I am dually certified in Elementary Education and Special Education, and I am currently working towards my Gifted Ed endorsement. I have taught mostly 3rd grade in my career so far.
Most of your children will recognize me from last year, as I was the Rescue Sub for Chaparral. I'm excited to be back in my own classroom this year, and I'm even more excited to see each of your children's familiar faces on my roster! Oh, and my sons are Sharks, too! I have a 6th grader & a 4th grader here at Chaparral and we LOVE this school. When we're not at school, we enjoy camping, hiking, and bike-riding. I also love animals, and my dream after I retire from teaching is to work on a farm.
I am a very happy and bubbly type of person. I love and take pride in being a teacher. I am truly excited for this school year and getting to know all of you.
