My name is Sara Hinke and I have the pleasure of working, living and raising my family in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. At a young age I would play teacher, create worksheets and give homework to the neighborhood kids. It wasn’t until high school, when I was required to take a fine arts course, that I found my true passion in art. I never knew I could create art until my high school art teachers fostered and challenged my talents. It was through these experiences that I knew I wanted to teach art and give my students the same passion for art that my teachers did.
As a grade 6-12 art educator at Tomahawk School District, I have the pleasure of getting to know, teach, and create art with every student. I have been teaching art for 11 years and have created a curriculum where every student has the chance to become an artist, creative problem solver and better citizen. I challenge my students to push themselves creatively, seek ideas and criticism from their peers, and denounce perfectionism by embracing mistakes. My favorite part about being an educator is watching my students’ eyes light up when they create art. My goal is to change each student’s “I can’t” to “I can” create. I believe that every person can learn to create art and that no one is without their own creative eye.
