Mrs. Hinman

I feel very fortunate to be one of the Kindergarten teachers here at El Verano.  Not only do I get the joy of being a teacher here I am also a parent of a child that attends EV.  El Verano holds a very special place for our family.  My mom has been the office manager since I was in elementary school.  I was born and raised in Sonoma.  I went to Sonoma State University and received my BA in Liberal Studies and my multiple subject credential. 


My passions in life are being a mother of two wonderful children and teaching.  Being a part of our young readers and writers is a true blessing.  My hobbies are running and waterskiing.  I love to go camping with my family and friends.  I also enjoy coaching track at Altamira Middle School. 


I truly love walking the halls of El Verano as a teacher and a mom.  El Verano is a great place to be and the biggest joy is watching our children of the future blossom.
