Ms. Walters

Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year 

My name is Shirley Walters and I am honored to be your child's First Grade Teacher and a part of the Hamilton Elementary team.  I am passionate about teaching and learning and believe all children can learn to their highest potential.  

I have been in education for just over 21 years. I have been a Teacher's Assistant, a Reading Teacher, a Sponsor, a Team Leader, an Instructional Coach, and a Classroom Teacher.

I have worked in Early Childhood Education through the secondary level providing support to students and staff.

This is my 6th year at Hamilton Elementary and my 11th year with Saint Louis Public School District teaching at the elementary level.

I enjoy reading, decorating, being with friends/ family, and TEACHING!

I believe communication is the key to a great family-teacher educational relationship.  You may contact me through Class DOJO or by email at 

I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child.
