Kindergarten — Mrs. Katie Hine

Hello! My name is Katie Hine, and I am thrilled to be a part of the PBES family. I am originally from North Carolina, but my family now calls the Gulf Coast our home. I graduated with my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education from the College of Charleston in 2012, and have taught in VPK, Kindergarten, 1st , and 2nd grade classrooms.

I live in Pensacola with my husband, 3 kids, and 2 dogs. I am very excited that my children will spend their elementary years as Sandpipers. Some of my favorite things include the beach, crafting, sports, and just being a tourist in our own town.

I started my teaching career in Kindergarten, and I am excited to be returning.  I treasure the opportunity to guide little people as they begin their school careers.  As an educator, my main goal is to create an environment where my students are comfortable and confident. I want to spark my students’ natural curiosity, allow them room to explore, and inspire a love of learning. I cannot imagine anything better than the opportunity to teach on the beach.
