MOIRA A. HAMILTON
MEET THE HEADMASTER
NEW LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR CHILDREN
Moira Hamilton is the Headmaster and Founder of Hamilton Liberty Academy. This has been a journey. Through her years at Northland Pioneer College, the University of Arizona and graduating also from Columbia University, she has seen firsthand the need for educational differences for our youth. As a current teacher this past year she has seen many disgraces for youth and their futures. She personally has had enough of the local public educational systems they continuously choose to oppress children instead of uplift them to their possibilities. She has also witnessed the lack of mathematical, reading comprehension, and any understanding of true history. The focus in public schools seems to be more about their lack of possibilities instead of showing them the truth. Many of her colleagues have seen the same around the world. We all believe it is time for a change.
