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.
