We are very excited to welcome back Hamlin graduates Erin Minuth ’07 and Claudia Tropp ’09. Both women will be working as Associate Teachers in Grade 2.
After attending Hamlin, Ms. Minuth graduated from Convent, then Whitman College, where she played tennis and was a Geology major. She then studied at the Teton Science School in Wyoming and is currently enrolled in the BATTI program (Bay Area Teacher Training Institute). Some of her favorite Hamlin memories are: performing in Mulan, speaking at the Grade 4 VIP assembly, and exploring Yosemite in the snow. This year she is very excited to work with our students on reading and literacy.
After attending Hamlin, Ms. Tropp also graduated from Convent, then Santa Clara University, later earning a Master’s degree from The University of Southern California (USC) in Elementary Education. She was inspired to be a teacher by her time at Hamlin, and was especially influenced by Ms. Chisholm and Ms. Micha. Some of her favorite Hamlin memories are: field days, graduating on the lair (she was the first class to experience this), and countless others. This year she is looking forward to bringing her many talents to Grade 2.
