About me: 

Hello! My name is Kelli Hinnant and I am ecstatic to be a Third grade teacher at Northwoods Elementary Magnet School. I am 27 years old and was born and raised in Wilmington, North Carolina. This will be my first year at Northwoods Elementary! Previously I was at Onslow Virtual School and Clyde Erwin Elementary School where I have taught Second grade at both schools. I did have the wonderful opportunity of teach 4th grade for half a year as well. 


I am a big fan of Disney and do enjoy playing video games and reading in my free time. I absolutely love spending time with my family and my friends. I do have a cat and his name is Ryder and he is so spoiled. I am so ready for this year and am excited for all of the adventures that will be coming our way! I am currently entering into my third year of teaching and could not be happier! I am so excited to be back in the classroom and to be face-to-face once more! 



I attended University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduated with a bachelors in Elementary Education, a minor in Psychology and a concentration in Behavioral Studies. I am currently a Graduate student at UNCW for Curriculum Studies.
