Biography

Hi! My name is Nick Hinkle. I am excited to welcome you to Fifth Grade! I graduated from Iowa State University (Go Cyclones!) with a degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in Social Studies and Coaching.  When I have free time, I enjoy spending it with my family and friends, going to the gym, and hanging out at the baseball diamond. I am looking forward to a fantastic year at Wright!

Biography

Hello Wright community! I am teaching 5th grade this year. I have been a teacher with DMPS for 25 years, 11 of those were classroom teaching in 4th grade and two years in 5th. The last 14 years I have taught reading, writing and math to students and worked closely with teachers in my former school communities of Longfellow and Carver.

Wright is an amazing school with great students, teachers, staff and principal! Outside of teaching, I am a native of Des Moines, married for 34 years with two sons, a daughter-in-law and a wheaten terrier named Winnie.
