Teachers - Grade One
Hi! My name is Colby Hinton. I am one of the grade one teachers at WES. Teaching is an absolute passion of mine and I am so happy to be back in the classroom full time, this will be my second year back after taking a break from teaching for the past 5 years and working part time as a Wellness Facilitator with Wainwright on Wellness (WOW) based out of the Wainwright Elementary School. I have a love for learning and hope to pass this love on to my students by creating a classroom environment that is safe, caring, stimulating, educational and fun!
I am married to my wonderful husband, Dallas and we have four awesome children: Seanna, Tristen, Ethan and Dylan. Right now and in the foreseeable future our life pretty much revolves around our kids and their activities. But I wouldn’t have it any other way! We spend our winters (okay some of fall and early spring too) at the rink, as all four of our children play hockey. When we aren’t at the rink we spend time at the farm, outdoors, playing games together, watching a good movie and going camping.
