Hello! My name is Toni Hines and this is my third year at Whitman Elementary! I graduated from Clarion University of Pennsylvania in 2011 with a bachelor's in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I taught preschool for a year in Pennsylvania before moving to Arizona to teach second grade in a Phoenix school. I am glad to be here in Mesa! I am married and have two adorable dogs and one son who was born November 2016! We love to swim, hike, travel, camp, and work on house projects. 

I believe that it is our goal as educators to educate each student to be a productive, successful contributor to society. I believe that it is our job as teachers to make sure that we get our students to the point where they are a positive addition to their community.


I believe that each child is unique and should be treated as an individual. Each student needs to be individualized and acknowledged as a different learner. I am able to teach to different learners using different approaches to teaching. I do not just address one type of learner, but all types. I am able to recognize different modalities adjust my lesson to accommodate all learners.

I am excited for this school year and am willing to work with you to make sure that we are really reaching your child's full potential.
