Hello, my name is Ed Hamilton. I am an ASD teacher here at Keewaydin. This will be my 5th year at Keewaydin and 3rd year working with the ASD Citywide Program. My background (aside from education) is in the arts and I believe my creative nature allows me to find unique ways to help meet students educational needs. 

I live in South Minneapolis and have 3 kids. One goes to Norhrop, one goes to Sanford, and my youngest will start Kindergrten next year!  My wife is a nurse and we have a very busy and happy home.
