Sarah Winnemucca teacher named Excellence in Education Award Winner


A first grade teacher at Sarah Winnemucca Elementary School knows it takes a team to get the best out of every student no matter what their ability is.

Trista Hintze is a critical link in that team and News Four's Excellence in Education Award Winner for the month of February.

Evening anchor Shelby Sheehan recently surprised Hintze during a school assembly.

She's taught kindergarten, 1st grade and special education in her seven years in the teaching profession and now combines that training in a mainstream 1st grade class.

Parents say one of her greatest strengths is adjusting to every student's specific needs. She is able to inspire her students and says they do the same for her, encouraging her to be the best she can.

With her amazing dedication to her students at school and 3 young boys of her own at home, Hintze has quite a lot on her plate but she finds a way to balance it all!

Congratulations to our Excellence in Education Award Winner for February 2017!
