Mr. Toby Pinkerman


Hi there, my name is Toby Pinkerman and I am a Mentor teacher for this school year. I have been teaching high school for over 12 years and have education experience in Writing, History, Debate, and Physical Education. When you walk into our classroom you will see a lively room centered on the student’s active learning, and white boards full of helpful subject appropriate materials to assist the students through their week.


I am a proud father of two kids. I have a 21 year old daughter who is a senior at Whitworth University and a 17 year old son who is a senior at Meridian high. They both love sports and have participated in them since elementary school. My daughter played soccer and volleyball and my son football and basketball.


Camping, hiking, and exercising are some of the things I like to do in my spare time. I grew up in a place where these activities were easy to access and participate in. Reading is another activity I enjoy and have recently finished the book “A Boy Called It” and am getting ready to read “A Man Named Dave”. This series of books has grabbed my full attention from the start! And, I’m looking forward to reading this final story.
