Meet Our PreK Teachers
Northwest Arkansas was my home for 35 years. I grew up in Fayetteville and graduated from Fayetteville High School in 1994. I received my BS degree in early childhood education from John Brown University and my MS in curriculum and instruction from Arkansas State University.
I started teaching in 2007. After teaching Pre-K for many years, I decided to move into a different role in early childhood education. In my role as an assessor of Pre-K learning environments around the state, I gained much insight through working with many Pre-K teachers and administrators. In 2019, I decided to return to the Pre-K classroom after deciding that is where my heart is. When I decided to return to teaching I was selective, and wanted to work in the best program possible. I am so proud to be a part of Russellville School District's Preschool program.
My 19 year old son, Cade, will start his sophomore year at Hendrix College in the Fall. I enjoy kayaking, hiking, camping and being outside.
My name is Katie Hamilton. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I started teaching Pre-k here at London in the winter of 2017 and have loved every minute of it! I love teaching the tinies because of their love for fun, learning, and each other. I hope my students always know that they are valued and loved! In my free time I love to watch all my favorite shows, craft, brainstorm ideas for my classroom and play with my dog, Ellie.
