It wasn't unusual to see Shearer Elementary School teacher Mike Hamilton helping his students in the classroom.
What was unusual was to see the fifth-grade science and math teacher tutoring second-grade students in a writing lesson. Teachers at Shearer participated in the school's first Teacher Swap Day, modeled after a TV show where family members exchange places.
For one day, fifth-grade teachers became second-grade teachers, fourth-grade teachers became first-grade teachers, second-grade teachers became fourth grade teachers and third grade teachers became kindergarten teachers.
Hamilton was helping second grader Brandon Baber compose a letter to his grandparents.
