Mr. James Hamilton
"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." — Frederick Douglas
Welcome to Mr. Hamilton's class! He is excited to teach 9th grade English for the 2017-18 school year.
The study of the English langauge is more than simply learning to read and write. It is learning to communicate, to analyze, to criticize. Language is the framework in which we think; the greater our command of language, the more opportunities we can self-create, the better we can advocate, and the more powerful we can be. Mr Hamilton looks forward to a fun-filled year of debate, argument, and storytelling.
Mr. Hamilton was born in the United Kingdom where he spent the majority of his life before moving to the U.S. He graduated from Duke University with a degree in Public Policy Studies. Outside of teaching, Mr. Hamilton is a rugby fanatic and theater enthusiast.
