My name is Shantel Hinton. I have been blessed to be a part of St. John’s Lutheran family, teaching four year olds for fifteen years. I received my degree in early childhood from MACC. It gives me so much joy guiding and teaching young children. I am very excited to see what the Lord has planned for our classroom. Together, as a team, I know we can help our children grow spiritually, academically, and socially. I look forward to meeting all of our new St. John’s families. God bless!
Hello everyone! My name is Krissy Adcock. I was born and raised in Valdez, Alaska and moved to Hannibal, Missouri as a young teenager. In 2012 I graduated from Truman State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in instrumental music. In 2013 I graduated from Truman State University again with a Masters of Arts in Elementary Education. I am also certified to teach early childhood education. I started teaching at St. John’s in 2013 as the High Five teacher. The next year I switched classrooms and became the Kindergarten teacher. This year I have been given the opportunity to teach music in grades K-8. I am excited to have the opportunity to share my love of music with all of the children! I am currently in my fifth year of teaching at St. John’s and I absolutely love it! I am married to Ryan and we have an adorable baby girl named Rylee. When I am not at school I can oftentimes be found at the Mark Twain Riverboat working in the gift shop. I enjoy knitting, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and enjoying long walks.
I am excited to have your child in my class this year!
Eight years ago, I returned to St. John’s as the first and second grade teacher. I previously had taught
second grade at St. John’s for the 1998-1999 school year, and then first grade after that for three more
years. Previous to that, I taught for two years at Holy Rosary School in Monroe City at the first grade
level. And before all of that, I graduated from Culver-Stockton College in May 1996 with a degree in
After taking time out in the business world (working for Niemann Foods in Quincy as an Equipment
Buyer), I decided that I was missing the imagination and creativity that teaching brought to my days. So
I returned to the field of education. I live with my husband, Doug, and eleven year old daughter, Maddie
in Payson, Illinois. Maddie is a sixth grader in Mrs. Miller’s class this year!
I would like the parents to know that they are always welcome to visit our room. If you have concerns,
questions, etc… please don’t hesitate to call me at school (221-0215), on my cell (217-430- 9257), or e-
mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are working as a team to help our kids get the best
When dreaming of the future for my students, I hope that they will grow into adults who possess self-
discipline, self-respect, respect for others, integrity, perseverance, patience, generosity, commitment,
determination, and diligence. St. John’s is a school that truly strives to instill these character traits in the
children that attend there. This will provide these students with the tools they can use to serve as
Christian witnesses and productive members of their future communities!
Welcome to second grade! I am so excited to spend time with each of you this year. We are going to learn while having a great time!

My name is Beth Griffith. I am the High 5’s Pre-K teacher. We will have lots of successes this year together. I will encourage your child to explore and learn many new things through books, singing, writing, painting, and physical activities. Learning to create; be a risk-taker (to try new things); be able to resolve conflicts peacefully with others; be proud of one’s accomplishments and be respectful will help prepare your child for kindergarten. I look forward to meeting with you and working together for your child.
