Who is Mrs. King?
I am honoured to be teaching Grade 8 English, Social Studies and Religion this year at Holy Trinity. Technology (specifically coding!) is my passion and I cannot imagine teaching without the use of technology. Hands-on, minds-on learning is what drives my curriculum and teaching philosophy. Our classroom runs on engagement, positivity, and a little bit of chaos.
While I am originally from a wee town north of London and moved here in 1997, I currently live close to one of my most favourite things...a lake! I'm a big believer in life long learning and taking risks. I've attended universities from Western to Brock to OttawaU to UStPaul to UBC. Teaching is my second career
(I was a social worker for many years!) and I'm so blessed to say I have the best "job" in the world. I love teaching SO much, I even teach teachers all year long!
I am married to the coolest guy, commonly known as Mr. King, and we have one son, Noah who attends the University of Guelph (Go Gryphons!). We have a super senior beagle mix named Woodstock who makes our lives interesting every day!
Our favourite thing to do as a family is to travel...ask me about our trip to Morocco where I made friends (not) with a camel or two and don't forget to ask me about my incredible moment with Pope Francis!
