Mrs. Alaina Hamilton
Welcome to 2nd Grade!
My name is Mrs. Hamilton, and I am going to be your second grade teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and adventure! I can’t wait to find out ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Stephen F. Austin State University- Go Jacks! I am certified to teach in the areas of EC-6th grade general, EC-12th grade Special Education, and Gifted and Talented. This will be my 8th year teaching at East Elementary. At East, I have taught Kindergarten, first, second, and third grade, as well as special eductaion and GT. My husband, Ryan, and I moved to Longview eight years ago from Texarkana, Texas. We moved here because he works for a bank that was starting a new location in Longview. I was lucky enough to land a job here at East! I absolutely LOVE HISD, East Elementary, and my work family! My husband and I have two beautiful boys, Grant (6) and Luke (5). This will be the first year for both of my boys to be on campus! They are looking forward to kindergarten and first grade!
After school, I love spending time with my husband and kids. I also enjoy visiting with friends and family, volunteering in the community, playing tennis, and baking cakes and cookies. (I have around 300 cookie cutters and enjoy finding new unique ones!)
I am excited to be your teacher and for you to be a part of this awesome, hardworking team in Room J225! This is going to be a FANTASTIC year!
