Who is Mr. Pinto?
Hi everyone! I am Mr. Pinto. I am a teacher at Indian Lane Elementary. I have been teaching for 20 years and this will be my 19th year at Indian Lane! I taught 1st grade for seven years, 3rd grade for three years, 5th grade for seven years and this will be my second year teaching 2nd grade! I love teaching because I love to work with kids, help them learn and encourage them to be the best person they can be!
When I am not at school I love to spend time with family! My wife and I have four beautiful children. Our daughter Gracie, is 12 years old and is entering 7th grade. Our twins, Kallie and Chase are 8 years old and going into 3rd grade. Our youngest daughter, Emmy, is almost 3 years old and will be going to nursery school this fall!
I also like to watch, play and coach many sports. My favorite sports are baseball and soccer. I am a huge Phillies fan! My favorite Phillies players of all time are Mike Schmidt, Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz. In the summer I like to go on vacations with my family and play different sports such as soccer, baseball and golf. I coach many of the sports teams that my children play on.
My advice to my students is to always try your best and have fun doing what you like to do. Be the kind of person that others would like to be around.
Have a great year!
