Welcome to Kinsey Island!
This is my 9th year in Magnolia ISD and my second year as a Full Time World Cultures teacher!! My hope is to instill in my students a love for knowledge about the world around them, including geography along with the values, lifestyles, and history of other cultures. I also hope to share with my students my love for travel whether the journeys be actual or virtual! I am looking forward to exploring the globe with my students at Magnolia 6th!
If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Tutorial Days and Times:
*Monday,Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays - 6:45am - 7:15am. Thursday is my duty day. Your student will be given a pass to come to tutorials on the days they need to come for help or complete work. If the pass is misplaced, come see me for a new one.
After an absence, students are responsible for completing any missed work. I will place all missed handouts, etc., in the classroom absent folder. The student will be responsible for locating the handout, completing the work, and returning the completed work to the teacher.
* Be in assigned seat BEFORE the tardy bell sounds.
* Speak to others with respect.
* Have required supplies in class every day.
* Students will be dismissed by the teacher, not the bell.
