I had the immense privilege of having Miss Hamilton as my teacher in both 4th and 6th grades. I owe much of my success in engineering, in business, and in life to the lessons I learned in her classroom. Miss Hamilton taught us responsibility, accountability, and discipline, and though she presented a stern persona, I came to understand that her classroom presentation was born of a deep concern for her students, and required tremendous preparation and consistency. I often reflect on the fact that, had we not been in the midst of a segregated America, we might never have had access to this incredibly talented woman as our grade school teacher. Nowadays, she might well be serving as national security adviser or some other high level post. Instead, God's wisdom brought her to us, where she prepared a whole army of tough, talented warriors who were prepared to make our country a better place. Miss Hamilton, you have earned your place in Heaven, and I know you are dancing with the angels right now. Thank you. Thank you. A million times, thank you.

To the members of Theresa's family, I offer my sympathy. Her life was a superb example of excellence. She served in several venues and excelled in each one. The Ypsilanti Community has lost another member of an outstanding family who gave so much to the community. May her memory live on.

What a great role model! She was the principal of Cummings when I was in k-4th grade in the 1970s. She was a tough cookie but still knew how to show love and joy. She loved having the brass bands play for us. I know she touched the lives of many! Thank you. You will be missed!

Miss Hamilton was my 4th and 5th grade teacher at Walker Elementary School located in Flint, MI. back in the 60's. She was the best teacher a student could have. She made us learn. She was a role model for all of us back then. With "Deepest Sympathy" to her family. She will be truly missed.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Hamilton. She was my elementary Principal at Cummings in Flint. She was a wonderful person and contributed to the person I have become.

She was my first principal, as well, as a new teacher in Flint Community Schools. What an accomplished woman she was, especially for her era! Condolences to her family

She was my elementary school principal at Cummings school in Flint, MI. I knew her to be a strict but fair disciplinarian, although I viewed it differently with a child's eyes. I was unaware of her many achievements and accolades. I wish I had known her more as an adult where I would have been able to fully appreciate what an amazing woman she truly was.

Dr. Hamilton was the first principal I worked for in Flint in 1970. She was greatly respected and I learned a great deal from her. Sorry for your loss.
