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!
