Hello First Grade Students and Families! I'm Mrs. King and I am so excited to be teaching first grade at Charlestown Elementary School! This is my seventh year teaching first grade at Charlestown. Previously, I taught second grade at Sugartown Elementary School, and prior to that, I taught fifth grade in the Reading School District for three years.
I graduated from Kutztown University in 2009 with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Mathematics. In February 2011, I earned a Program Specialist Certificate in ESL from Penn State, and in May of 2013, I earned a Masters in Education with a speciality in ESL.
When I'm not teaching or in class, I love to spend time with my family. My family includes Mr. King and our little girl, Blair, and our twin little boys, Jack and Eddie. Blair is almost three years old, her birthday is coming up in November, and Jack and Eddie were just born in May! We also have three dogs, Penny, Emmy, and Minnie, and a cat named Cookie. We live in the same neighborhood as my mom and dad, and my brother, sister-in-law, and my new neice, Brinley. I also love to read, (my all-time favorite book is, "Oh, the Places You'll Go", by Dr. Seuss), listen to music, and make crafts. : )
