Ms. Taraina Hamilton

Welcome to my 7th Grade ELA class. This is my 4th year teaching and my 1st year at R.K. Smith Middle School. I am a life-long resident of St. Charles Parish and a proud graduate of Destrehan High School. I am looking forward to getting to know the students and exploring the literature together. This year I will incorporate Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks.

Google Classroom is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be posted and collected digitally.

To access Google Classroom please use the following link have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments, and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the "Google Classroom" link on the left side of the menu. 

*Due to Distance Learning, the weekly schedule can be found on Google Classroom. Please follow the above link for access.*


This year I will also be the Girls' Basketball Assistant Coach.
