Please welcome her back to Bullitt County Public Schools as the new Director of Elementary Education after current director Adrienne Usher accepted the position of Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning.
“I feel very honored to have been offered the position,” Hamilton said. “I am excited to work with some very talented people. I come in to the position with a lot of experience, but I know I have a lot to learn. And, I’m excited about that.”
Her goals include working alongside principals to help support them in curriculum/instruction and student instruction.
“I also hope to be out in the field often; in each elementary school at least twice a month,” she said.
Bullitt County Public Schools Superintendent Keith Davis is exited Hamilton taken on this role.
“She is one of the best people I know,” Davis said. “She’s smart, she works hard and she does not mince words when it comes to what is best for children.”
Hamilton started her career as a teacher at Hebron Middle School, Lebanon Junction Elementary and Mt. Washington Middle School before taking time off to raise two children.
She restarted her career at Mt. Washington Elementary and taught grades K-8 (except fifth).

She served as Instructional Coach at Crossroads Elementary School and worked as a Highly Skilled Educator (HSE). “I was blessed to serve in that role before the state reorganized to serve students in a different capacity. During that year, I completed the work necessary to obtain my administrative certifications,” she said.”
