My name is Jenny Hamilton and I'm joining Orchard Park Elementary in the 4th grade. Teaching elementary school is a second career for me. After staying home with my children, I discovered my calling and a deep and abiding love of working with elementary age kids. I completed IUPUI's Transition to Teaching program in December 2014 and, for the past several years, I've taught in Lawrence Township in 2nd and 3rd grade. My background is communication and after earning my doctorate, I taught several years at the college level including Wabash College and Marian University. I have lived in Carmel for 14 years with my husband, three daughters, and our dog Lulu. I'm very excited to be teaching in the community where I live. My oldest is leaving for college this fall! When I"m not teaching, I'm with my girls and running from marching band to soccer practices. I love traveling the world and most recently went to Japan where my daughter was studying. I also enjoy cooking with my daughters and reading.
