Rosa Parks Elementary – Brittany Hamilton, 3rd Grade
Third grade teacher Brittany Hamilton was named the 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year for Rosa Parks Elementary School. She has been with Union since 2016.
Hamilton said, “I became a teacher because of the wonderful examples set by my mom and by my grandpa. They both taught me that being a teacher is to be a life-long learner with an unconditional love for every student.”
Hamilton said, “My favorite subject to teach is writing because it challenges my students and me to become stronger readers, writers, thinkers, and problem-solvers. Writing is an ill-defined problem with endless solutions, so students are able to show their creativity in their work.”
Hamilton has a bachelor’s of science degree in elementary education and English language learners from Oral Roberts University.
