Ms. Hinz

My name is Colleen Hinz, and I am a Special Education teacher at Battle Creek Middle. This is my third year at BCMS, and my 8th year teaching in Saint Paul. I completed my under graduate degree at Augustana University ’02 (Sioux Falls, SD) where I also played softball. I obtained my Masters Degree in Special Education from the University of Saint Mary’s in 2013. I am a proud alumni of Hogwarts School, where I was a member of Hufflepuff House. I am currently the keeper for the Holyhead Harpies.

I have two amazing children, and spend an abundance of my free time having outdoor adventures with them. My family loves to travel (I plan to go to all 50 states by the time I’m 50) go camping, and read books! One day hope to live in a yurt! We also have chickens.
