Who am I?
Welcome! My name is Whitney Hines, and this year I'm serving as the Instructional Coach for Smith Middle School.
I am married to Steven Hines, and we have three daughters: Grace, Morgan, and Taylor.
I have served Ozark City Schools in several capacities over the last eleven years, including several years as a general education classroom teacher and three years as a special education teacher.
This year, I am furthering my professional learning in several ways. First, I am in graduate school at Troy University, working on my Master's degree in Instructional Leadership and Administration. Secondly, I am going through a certification process to be an affiliate trainer with the eMINTS program. Finally, I am involved in Google's certification programs for educators. Currently I have earned my Level 1 Certification and am working on my Level 2 Training.
If you have more questions about exactly what I do, please watch the short introduction video on the home page of my site.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel that I can answer any questions about our school's instruction, curriculum, and assessments!
