Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Dawn Hinz
Welcome to first grade. I attended Elmhurst College, in Elmhurst, Ill., where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. I have my master’s in reading instruction from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb. My teaching career began in Lombard, Ill., at Westmore Elementary School, where I taught first and second grade. In 2001, I joined the School District 308 staff at Traughber Junior High School. In 2002, I transferred to Homestead Elementary, where I taught first grade for three years. This is my 10th year at Fox Chase. I’m looking forward to a great year.
