Mrs. Hamilton is a beloved English teacher here at West. Her husband, Jody Hamilton, is the head coach of the West varsity baseball team. She teaches freshman English and has been teaching for twenty seven years. She recently won the Teacher of the Year award. “It was a great honor to be named teacher of the year,” Hamilton said. When asked the best thing about being a teacher she said “When former students come back to visit you and truly thank you for teaching them.” Sadly, this is her last year at West because she is retiring. “I’m excited about the new chapter in my life, but I’ve definitely enjoyed all twenty seven years of teaching,” Hamilton said. She definitely deserved the award she received and we will really miss her.
