I LOVE THIS SCHOOL! I had two kids to come through Hamilton doors, and had to drive acorss town. I had a reason, however, Ms. Shernell Daniel! She is a different, fun, loving, and real, plus great teacher, educator, mentor, mother, and everything you can imagine to children. I do notsee many like her these days. I love this woman because she really cares about the children and DEMANDS that they learn. She changes kids and meets them where they are. She takes no excuses for learning, and actually young (late 30s), but old schooled with teaching. She tutors, calls to see why your child isnt at school, will come and pick up too. She does home visits,and actually came by and met our family. She cares. She provides clothing and supplies does that does not have, and truley cares..She should be recognized for all her hard work and everything. It is those teachers like her, who is OVERLOOKED...As long as she is there, my familly will allow others relatives to attend. Saving the best for last, she has out this world scores, PROVEN. My daughter, was really low (all her life), but Ms/. Shernell worked with her and now an honor student. Youve got to love it...Thanks to Mrs. Stanford, and all of the HES crew. Keep doing great things in the "South" !!
