Mrs. Hinson


Welcome to our Primary IG class! I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back some of my superheroes! For those of you who are new, my name is Mrs. Hinson and I will have the pleasure of working with you this year! The 2023-2024 school year will mark my 20th year teaching in Herricks. I am incredibly excited to get back to the classroom to work with my former superheroes and welcome some new superheroes, too!  We will have lots of fun in our Superhero Class!! 

As some of you know, I LOVE superheroes. You will notice that I will often refer to my students as my "Superheroes" and will do many superhero-themed activities. When my children, Emma and Jake, were little, they absolutely LOVED superheroes. My children were my inspiration in naming my class, "The Superhero Class" many years ago.  When they were little, Emma and Jake had many superhero toys and costumes they played with all the time. Now that they are older, they still love superheroes, but enjoy a variety of other themes too! Many of my students often talk about Emma and Jake and have even had the opportunity to meet them. You will see lots of pictures of them in our classroom! Emma and Jake are always doing or saying something funny and keep me very, VERY busy! Jake is a hockey goalie. He travels all over to play with his teammates. Emma is a martial artist who is entering her first tournament in September.  Did you know that Mr. Hinson is a brave New York City firefighter? He is our hero! 

My summer was very quiet. In May, I had neck surgery, and it took time to recover and get stronger. My family and I had a very relaxing summer, as we spent a lot of time at the beach and had quiet BBQs with family and friends. Emma and Jake had the opportunity to go to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama with Mr. Hinson. They had a blast!

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over and that we will be back to school soon. My family and I are also getting ready for the new school year. This school year, Emma is starting 6th grade and Jake will be in 5th grade. I can't believe my babies are growing so fast. In the blink of an eye, my firstborn is starting middle school and my lastborn is in his LAST year of elementary school!!! They are excited about meeting their new teachers and seeing their friends. I know they will have a great year! 

I’m looking forward to working with all of my superheroes this year! Together, we will have a SUPER year!!
