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!
