Mrs. Michelle Hinckley

Fifth Grade Teacher


I am so excited to be here at Shepard! This will be my first year teaching, but I have been involved with Shepard through PTA, being a parent, and substituting.


I received my Bachelors of Science from Brigham Young University and recently received my teaching certificate.

I have worked in Finance and Healthcare, and am a Certified EMT.

My daughter Arya is in 3rd grade here at Shepard, and I love to come with her to school each day.

 I enjoy reading, art, and spending time with my family- including my 3 cats and 1 dog!
