Shorecrest PTSA Outstanding Educator


Ms. Claire Hinman

Ms. Hinman is this year’s Shorecrest PTSA Outstanding Educator. As well as being an incredible math teacher, Ms. Hinman is one of the class advisors for the Class of 2021.  According to her students, Ms. Hinman is “extremely positive, kind, understanding, and helpful, and really cares about her students and their learning.”  The pandemic did not stop Ms. Hinman from providing outstanding, quality education. She recorded every zoom lesson she taught and made the recording available to ensure that students could watch parts they missed or review parts they needed to understand better. She also offered office hours almost every day after school and/or during lunch break where students could ask questions and get help.  As a class advisor she helped the Class of 2021 navigate this challenging year with extra support and positivity.
