Ms. Andrea Hamilton

Bio
Greetings,my name is Andrea Hamilton I am a 15 year veteran in the field of education. I taught in the inner-city schools locate in Brooklyn New York. I am the fourth generation in my family to be an educator. I am very proud to say that my mother was a great inspiration in my pursuit to join this field. Since migrating to North Carolina in 2006 until 2013, I work with the Department of Public Safety rehabilitating juvenile delinquent’s. That  gave me the opportunity to use my counseling degree. Which gave me great pleasure to assist with helping young people make better decisions.
Philosophy of Teaching / Education
My passion for education has matured over the years. Many years ago I learned how to teach from a textbook, but my real teaching came from my life experiences.I want my children/students to understand that learning comes from everything. I want to teach them to embrace all KNOWLEDGE and  capture it as WISDOM.My philosophy on education stems from Malcolm X …knowledge is a key that opens up many doors be prepared
