Hello, Sharks! I am Anissa (Ani) Hamilton and I am so excited to be a 3rd grade teacher at Chaparral! This will be my 15th year as a teacher. I am certified in Elementary Education and I have a background in Special Education. Additionally, I am currently working towards my Gifted Ed endorsement. I have taught mostly 3rd grade in my career so far.
Both of my sons are Higley kids; my oldest will be attending Cooley this year, and my youngest is in 5th grade here at Chaparral! 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.
