Degrees and Certifications:

Karlene Hamilton

    I am originally from the island of Jamaica and moved to New York City where I pursued my Bachelors and Masters degrees. After graduating from the City University of New York, I worked in New York as an educator, journalist, media relations professional, and editor. Reflecting on my career I realilze I have always been teaching and writing in one capacity or another.

    I moved to Ocala, FL in 2015 and have since worked as a middle school teacher. As a published poet and author, I impart my love for reading and love of words to my students, while helping them to enhance their reading comprehension skills.

    Feel free to reach me by telephone at extension 56505 between 2 and 3 pm daily, or by email at karlene.hamilton@marion.k12.fl.us.

    I am looking forward to a productive year and count it a privilege to be your child's teacher.

    Cheers to a great year!
