Mrs. Laura Hamilton

My name is Laura Hamilton and I am one of the Reading Recovery teachers at Sweeny Elementary.  I am in my 30th year of teaching.  I have taught Reading Recovery for fifteen years.  Before I began teaching Reading Recovery, I taught Title I Reading to students in every grade level up to eighth grade.  I taught in a regular fifth and sixth grade classroom before becoming a reading specialist.  I have taught in several districts over the past twenty-nine years.  Some of those districts were Strafford, Springfield, Nixa, and Clever.  I truly have a passion for teaching reading!  When I am not at school teaching I love spending time with my family.  I am married and I have three children, two son-in-laws, and a future daughter-in-law!
