Welcome to Mrs. Kinsey's 6th Grade World Cultures Class!

Welcome to Kinsey Island! 
     This is my 10th year in Magnolia ISD and my third 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 Intermediate!
If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
