Alia Gonzales, President

My name is Alia Gonzales and my only son is a 7th grader here at Hamilton. I was part of the CSC in our elementary school and have been an active member of the PTSA during his 6th-grade year. I have enjoyed being involved in supporting the Hamilton community and celebrating the hard work of the students. Professionally, I work in Library Administration with the City of Aurora. This role has allowed me to work with my passion for communities as well as truly value education and literacy. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services with a Specialization in Marketing which has allowed me to develop what it means to work with the community in the most effective way possible.  In my free time I enjoy reading, crochet, puzzles, and true crime documentaries.


Anna Kluver-Fensler, Vice President

I’m a small business owner and holistic wellness coach. I’m also a former DPS teacher, and staff developer that worked for the district for over 15 years. I have two kids, one at Hamilton and one at Bradley elementary. I believe in neighborhood and community supported schools. I’m a native of Southeast Denver and went Thomas Jefferson High School. I was the treasurer for the Hamilton PTSA last school year and I’m excited to take on this new role as Vice President this 21/22 school year.


Kristy Sawyer, Secretary

I’ve lived in Southeast Denver for over 20 years. I love this community and I am a strong advocate for our neighborhood schools here. 2021-22 year will be my 5th year as a Hamilton parent. My oldest son went through 3 years at Hamilton and is now at Thomas Jefferson, and my youngest son will be in 8th grade this year at Hamilton. I’ve enjoyed being involved in my kids’ schools and being a part of PTAs since they were in elementary school. I served as PTA Treasurer and a Committee lead when my kids were at Samuels Elementary. I’m excited about the opportunity to become more involved with the Hamilton PTA next year. Professionally, I work for Denver Public Schools supporting our Bond programs and implementing Quality Learning Environment projects across the district.
