Mr. David Hinrichs

I am Mr. Hinrichs, an 8th grade science teacher at Temecula Middle School.  I have been teaching for 31 years, and this is my 18th year at TMS.

I think science is a great subject to teach to middle schoolers because science attempts to explain the natural world around us, and that natural world is an amazing place!

I have a BA in Psychology from Biola University, (1985), and an MA in Educational Administration from National University (1993).  I have an Elementary Multiple Subjects Credential, and a Single Subject Suplementary Authorization Credential in Science
