Weinberg alumna Deanna Hamilton '97 has been named to NerdScholar's "40 Under 40 Professors Who Inspire" list.
Hamilton says she is privileged to witness the “light bulb moments” her students have in her classroom at Chatham in Pittsburgh.
“These moments don’t occur randomly,” says one colleague, but “are the products of carefully crafted learning experiences that Dr. Hamilton builds with the raw materials of time, passion, and a strong intellect.”
She’s known to get creative, having used the Harry Potter books as inspiration for one of her courses. As one student puts it, Hamilton is a “super-sharp tack. Anyone who is paying attention knows that pretty quickly.”
