Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Janice Kinnear

Welcome to Mrs. Kinnear's 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Science Classroom.  This is my 4th year at Advantage Academy Grand Prairie West (GPW).  This is my seventh year as a classroom teacher and I have been certified in  Education since May 2007.  Advantage Academy GPW has been a very challenging and rewarding place to teach.  I so much enjoy spending time with students and helping them grow.  My philosophy is to never give up on students and I am determined to help each and every child learn.  

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Merchandising and minor in Marketing from Texas Christian University in 1987.  I attended Graduate classes in Elementary Education at Texas Christian University in 2005 to 2007.  My husband, James works at AAFES (Army & Air Force Exchange Service) corporate office as a Planner for their stores.  I live in Hurst, Texas with James and two dogs, Goldi and Charlie.  My mother is moving in with us in June 2021.

I hope to have a succcessful year and my door is always open to discuss anything regarding how to help your child excel in class and in life.  My email address is janice.kinnear@advantageacademy.org.
