Hinda Abdi, 1st Grade Teacher

Welcome to Room 210!
My name is Hinda Abdi. I am excited to be teaching first grade this year at Whittier. 
I am originally from San Diego , California and received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and in 5-8 Social Studies Education from Concordia University- St. Paul. I also have my master's in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Minnesota.  I have always wanted to work in education and I'm thrilled to be on the 1st grade team.
Outside of teaching and learning, I love traveling and going to new places. The Dali Lama said ,  "Once a yeargo someplace you've never been before.I also love hiking and going horseback riding ."
I want to thank you in advance for all your support. Together we will continue to work toward success for your child. I am very excited about the year ahead, and look forward to having the privilege of teaching your child!
