Beth Ellingen - 3rd Grade Teacher
This will (GULP) be my 31st year in teaching. Seriously, my parents shipped me off to school when I was very young (it was legal back then) so I’m not as old and rickety as those 31 years make me sound! In the past I have taught 3rd grade, 1st grade, Chapter I Reading and have also been an elementary librarian. I do love my job…some days are absolutely nuts/crazy but the promise of each child and the opportunity they have to learn and grow each day is incredibly motivating. My husband, Steve Hinker, is also a teacher (2nd grade in Howard-Suamico) so our household has many changes come September each year! We have a daughter, Annie, who will be 21 in a couple of months. She is a junior at Madison. Our son, Bobby, is a senior at De Pere High School.
