Golden Apple – Amy Hinote

Golden Apple - Amy Hinote

Science teacher Amy Hinote is the October recipient of the Golden Apple Award. She was selected by last month’s recipient Adriah Williams. 

“She goes above and beyond to help students learn, “ Williams said. “She truly cares about their learning and well being.” 

Hinote advocates for peer learning in her classroom. She urges her students to ask questions during class, as well as before and after. 

“I think the main thing is reading the room. Trying to figure out if they are with me and if they understand,” Hinote said. “I like for them to give some feedback because then I know if they are with me.” 

Hinote has always had a love for science. She was a student worker for Alabama Science in Motion for three and a half years in college where she taught teachers how to teach their labs. Prior to teaching at Starr’s Mill, Hinote taught at Whitewater High School for 10 years. 

“We are all in this together as a big class,” Hinote said. “Everybody needs to support each other and help each other to get where we need to be.” 

In her free time, Hinote enjoys spending time with her family and completing Thomas Kinkade puzzles, one of her favorite hobbies. 

Hinote will receive $100 from Farmers Insurance to spend on curriculum or instruction. She plans to purchase construction paper, markers, glue sticks, and other tools that will be helpful for daily labs and activities. She will also receive a free large pizza from Buck’s Pizza, a gift certificate to Lisa’s Creperie in Senoia, and a free haircut from Mane Hair in Peachtree City.
