Mrs. Janice Kinard, 7th Grade Science/Advanced Science


Originally from Mississippi, I graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Education. I have taught preschool, kindergarten, 1st, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th and college level in Mississippi, Kentucky, Indiana and Alabama. This is my 22nd year at Fairhope Middle School.


I enjoy being outdoors! Whether it is taking a walk on the beach, in the woods or my neighborhood, or just sitting on the porch, I love to observe the world around me. My husband and I are both pilots and enjoy flying. I also raise orphaned squirrels and release them in my backyard. 


School Activities

I sponsor our Science Club.  Announcements will be made when we are ready to get started for the new year.  Application packets will be on the wall outside my room.

I also sponsor a 3 day, 2 night field trip for 7th graders to Camp McDowell.  Interest flyers will be given to all 7th graders after school starts. 


Camp McDowell Field Trip - March 20-22, 2019

All 7th graders will recieve a flyer and lottery slip about the 3rd week of school.  If your child wants to be in the lottery draw the lottery slip must be returned by the due date.
