6th Grade

Mr. Hinton  - Teacher

My name is Mr. Hinton and I am the 6th grade teacher here at Burnham Elementary for this school year.  I am very excited to be joining the Burnham family and cannot wait to get to know everyone in it!

I am coming into Burnham this year as a first year teacher.  I am very happy that my first teaching position is a close-knit environment such as Burnham.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Carroll University in Wisconsin with a minor in History.  I also have taken part in a management training course with the Chicago White Sox where I was able to obtain many key skills that I feel will enhance our classroom even more.

There are many goals that I wish to accomplish this year and we are going to work hard as a class to reach these.  We will be focusing strongly on Math and Reading this year with the goal of all students meeting and exceeding standards on the state testing.  In addition to academics, I have also introduced a behavior standard into our classroom as well.  I am holding students to high standards in terms of “acting like a 6th grader.”  I have discussed with my students how this includes qualities such as respect, maturity, responsibility and teamwork that will be important to not only their success, but our success as a class in whole.

I am very excited for this school year and hope that you are as well.   If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me via email or by calling Burnham at any time.
