Hey everyone! Math is the language of the universe, and I am so glad to be sharing it with my students each day!
My name is Jillian Hamilton. I joined the PN-G High School faculty in the fall of 2011, and I am so honored to be part of such an exceptional campus and district. I graduated high school Summa Cum Laude right here at PN-G in May of 2006 and am so fortunate to spend my career at my alma mater. I studied at Lamar University as a Mirabeau (Presidential) Scholar and graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in May of 2009. During my time as an undergraduate, I began my professional research in abstract algebra with graph theory and began presenting my work at conferences. In the fall of 2009, I enrolled at Lamar once again to pursue graduate studies in mathematics. I published my first professional paper in 2010 and began teaching for Lamar as an Adjunct Instructor that fall. I graduated from Lamar with a Master of Science in Mathematics in August of 2011. I am in my twelfth year at PN-G, teaching Pre-Calculus (Regular and Honors) and AP Calculus I; each of these courses is co-enrolled via our partnership with Texas Woman's University. I am 8-12 Mathematics and Gifted/Talented Certified.
Outside of school, I greatly enjoy time with family and friends, reading, restaurants, and concerts, and being Godmother to four wonderful, intelligent, and fun-loving people (in PNG Classes of: 2027, 2031, 2035, and MKCHS Class of 2037). Aside from my love of mathematics, I am deeply passionate about Ballet and other dance arts and am Progressing Ballet Technique certified and a proud member of Dance Masters of America, certified in Ballet and Jazz. I am also a distance runner and a member of the United States Running Streak Association/Streak Runners International.
