Joi Kinnett

I am beginning my first year at Ben Hill Middle School and my 34th year all together.  I taught music for 21 years before moving to fifth grade and I taught 5th grade for 12 years at Ben Hill Elementary School.  I graduated from Fitzgerald High School with honors and four years later, graduated from Valdosta State College with a Bachelor of Music degree.   I am so excited to be teaching at Ben Hill Middle School.  My favorite part of my job is the look on my students' faces when they enjoy reading a book.

  • Parents, I have made assignments in Schoology for practice of standards RL 3 (Story Elements) and RL 6 (Point of View).  Your child may log into Schoology through Office 365 (their email information) and work on any of these assignments.  They will be updated with new assignments periodically and will be available until December 13.

  • All newsletters and parent communications (anything that I send home with students) are now available throught your child's Schoology account as well.  Your child can access their Schoology account by logging into Office 365 first.  The links can be found on the BHMS homepage. 

    You will find newsletters in the 2019-2020 Newsletter folder and all parent communication is the Parent Communication folder.  If your child is not bringing home letters/notes from me, you can now find those communications in Schoology.
