“I am Hamilton” spotlights the contributions of alumni, teachers, parents, students, support workers and community members in providing opportunities for children in the classrooms of Hamilton County Schools. "Better opportunities for children today mean a brighter future filled with possibilities for our graduates, their families and the community," officials said.
Today, “I am Hamilton” spotlights Laurel Brooke, a first-year teacher at Wolftever Creek Elementary. “I worked in insurance, and it was just not touching my soul,“ Ms.
Brooke said. “There is just something about working with children and helping them expand their minds, their thinking and their world that gets me fired up.”
Ms. Brooke was nervous about her first class, but she is certain about the impact she wants to have on the lives of the children this year. “I want them to love learning so that they can live a more passionate life and a more empowered life,” she said. “I want them to see that they can be successful.”
