Mrs. King

Hello and Welcome!  This is my 17th year at Coronado K-8, and my 27th year teaching special education. I feel thankful every day that I am part of such a wonderful school, with the most incredible staff and students!  I love coming to school each day; I anticipate continuing to work here until I retire (which won't be anytime soon!)  I've lived in Tucson for most of my life, and I love the weather so much I can't imagine ever moving away.  I spend my time away from school outdoors as much as possible, and my summers at an RV park in the Gila mountains near Silver City, New Mexico.  I love camping with my husband Mickey, riding my quad and our side-by-side, reading, and playing with my dogs Daisy and Scarlett.  I also have 3 turtles that came with our house!

Core Educational Belief:  I believe that all students can learn; some just learn much differently than others.

Prior Experience: After I graduated from NAU, I moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I taught students in a self-contained special education program for 10 years at 1 school.  I was the Special Education department co-chair the last year I was there.  During the summers, I taught summer school in the public school, and I also taught a specialized private summer program using the Hill Center Curriculum.  I missed living in Tucson near my family, so I moved back here and taught special education math and english to middle school students at a school in TUSD for 1 year.  I was fortunate to find my dream job, and have been the Special Education Facilitator and a resource teacher at Coronado K-8.  Since I've been here, I've taught special education, general education, math and reading intervention classes, an advanced math class, ACHIEVE, and summer school.
