Wow! I’m so excited at the possibilities that open up as a DEN STAR Educator. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn, share, and grow with such an amazing network of leaders and learners.

A little bit about myself…

My name is Kelly Hines. I’m a 4th grade teacher in Chocowinity, North Carolina. I am a mother of wild and crazy twin boys who are 5. I’m married to a wonderful teacher and football coach.  I’m blessed that I love what I do! I have taught for 10 years and have taught grades 3-6. I’ve also been an AIG (gifted learner) Specialist. I am National Board Certified Teacher (Middle Childhood Generalist) and I also do a lot of professional development in science, math and technology.

You can see a little bit more about me at my blog, Keeping Kids First, and at our classroom site (Mrs. Hines’ Leading Learners).

I’m so looking forward to learning with you!
