Mr. Kyle M. Thrift

My name is Kyle M. Goins-Thrift, and this is my second year at Belair K-8.  This is my 21st year in education and my 10th year teaching 8th-grade Science.  I have taught in Georgia and North Carolina, but I am excited to be in Richmond County Schools.  I am currently working on my Masters degree in Media, Technology, and Design at the University of West Georgia. I have an associate's degree in General Studies from Brewton-Parker College in Mt. Vernon, Georgia.  I went to Ogchee Technical College to receive my associate's in Funeral Services.  Graduated from Brewton-Parker College in 2003 with a degree in Middle School Science and Social Science Education with a minor in communication.  While in North Carolina, I attended Queen's University of Charlotte and received my add-on certificate in school administration.  Along with attending The University of West Georgia, I attend classes at RESA to become endorsed in gifted education here in Richmond County.     

This year, I also oversee the school news with Mrs. N. Jones, our STEM teacher.  She is doing a great job teaching the students videos and how to create our daily news for the school.  I am currently working on the editing process. We put out a daily program showing our schools' talents in front of the camera and behind the scenes.
