Ms. Hinshaw grew up in Mesa; attending Whittier Elementary, Carson Jr. High, and Westwood High.  She graduated from A.S.U. in 1993 (Go Sundevils!) and began teaching for Mesa Public Schools the same year.  She started teaching at O'Connor part-time in 2007 and became the full-time school based teacher the following year.  In addition to teaching elementary physical education, she has also taught 3rd grade and adapted physical education.  Ms. Hinshaw's trademark saying is "Stuck inside, doesn't mean stuck on the couch!"  So get moving and enjoy whatever you do!
