Hello & Welcome to Fourth Grade at Joseph J. Rhodes Elementary School!
My name is Royal Hines and I've been an educator in Dallas ISD for 11years. Teaching children and making a difference in their lives is the most rewarding experience. Math is my favorite subject and I enjoy sharing my love and enthusiasm for it with others. I will also be teaching science. This year your child will explore many different science concepts and I look forward to sharing that information with them. 

Here is some background information about me. I was born and raised in Austin, TX. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice.I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a Masters of Science in Curriculum Instruction and Design. I am currenltly completing my Masters of Science in Education Administration through LeTourneau University. I have continued to take classes to ensure that I am teaching the latest, most effective methods. As you can see, education is a very high priority for me
