Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Dan Hinton


My name is Dan Hinton. My family moved to the Phoenix area in 2015.  I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education with a Phys. Ed. and Health major, from Minot State University, in Minot, North Dakota.  I began my teaching career at Minot High School, in Driver Education(2011), and transitioned to Phys. Ed. and Health(2013).  In Minot, I was also the Head Coach for the girls high school swim team, and an assistant coach for the high school boys swim team.  I have coached for Minot High School since 1997.  We were fortunate to have won many state titles and to have had many individual state champions.  I also coached at the middle school level in swimming, track and field, and basketball.

I have always enjoyed sports, and physical activity.  My experience includes participation in many different sports.  Athletics taught me how to be cooperative, yet competitve.  It taught me to be a team player.    I learned respect, responsiblity, and patience through these experiences.  I feel it is important to set a good example for our students, especially at the elementary and middle school levels.  I hope to give the students the same positive experience that I was given through my athletic experiences and physical education class.

I am excited to meet my students and share my love of athletics with them,

Dan Hinton
