• Dear First Grade Families,

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! My name is Jessica Hamilton, and I am thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher! 

    Prior to meeting you on our first day and Back to School Night, please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. This will be my ninth year teaching first grade in Council Rock and my fifth year at Welch! Though I love working with children of all ages, I can confidently say that first grade is the BEST!

    My love for this community runs deep! I grew up in Newtown and also attended Council Rock. I went to Florida State University (Go Seminoles) for my undergrad and am finishing up Masters in Special Education at West Chester University. I have a two-year old son named James who my husband and I adore. He is the light of our lives and love watching him grow. You can see a picture of him below!

    I also have a yellow lab named Jenny. She is very silly and makes James laugh daily.  In my free time, I enjoy running, reading, riding my Peloton, baking and watching football! Go Birds! We also love going to the beach and do so often! Most importantly, I love working with children and helping kiddo's learn to read, write, and make new friends. I truly LOVE my job - all thanks to your children's smiling faces!

      **Kindly email me at jessica.hamilton@crsd.org so I can do the following:

    1. Confirm all email addresses you would like to use throughout the year.
    2. Be made aware if your child prefers to go by a nickname. (example: Joseph, Joe)

    Also, feel free to email me with any questions, or to simply say hello! I would love to hear from you and will be sure to respond promptly.

    I wish you a fun, safe, and adventurous summer! See you soon!


    Lots of love, 

    Mrs. Hamilton
