Ms. Lauri Hamilton
Hi River Dell Families,
I am Lauri Hamilton and proud to be a River Dell Racer. This is my 22nd year of teaching and my 15th year at River Dell. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration as well as a degree in Elementary Education. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 1st grades throughout my teaching career. My love is teaching 1st graders and teaching them to become lifelong readers. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect. An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world.
I have a beautiful family of three children and two 4-legged friends. Clayton, NC has been our home for the past 18 years. I enjoy being a mom the most and watching my children participate in all their activities. During the summer months I spend my free-time golfing, going to the beach and reading for pleasure.
I hope to meet your friendly faces when you are visiting River Dell Elementary.

We had a parent information night on Standards Based Teaching and Learning planned for September 20th. Due to the hurricane and its impact on our schedules, we have had to postpone that meeting. We now have the rescheduled date. We will have our parent night on Standards Based Teaching and Learning on Tuesday, October 16th from 6pm to 7pm in our cafeteria. We will also have our PTA share some very important information at the beginning of that meeting as well.
