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,
