Hi! My name is Mrs. Hinckley and I will be teaching 1st grade again here at Excelsior Academy. I love the curriculum at Excelsior and enjoy watching my student's blossom and grow during their first full year of school. I have been teaching since 1980 and, if you do the math, you realize I am a "grandma" teacher. I have received my Masters Degree in Urban Education, as well as endorsements in ESL and Reading Levels 1 and 2. Through born and raised in the east, I have lived in Utah all my adult life. I love to travel and have visited historical sites, collected photos and books about Lewis and Clark, Mount Rushmore and the mammoths of the Ice Age. I also love to read, especially to children. I am excited for another year of teaching and look forward to meeting and working with both my new students and their parents.
