The community at The Norman Howard School believes: 

 

“every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them. Who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” - Rita Pierson

Ms. King shares that she grew up with her  own learning obstacle, “Auditory Discrimination,” which is a central auditory processing skill that involves the ability to differentiate among phonemes—the smallest significant units of sound in a language.  Academics have been a struggle throughout her life and she empathizes with the trials and tribulations Norman Howard School students face.These life experiences influence Ms. King's teaching in the classroom and her work as a math tutor every day.

 

Outside the classroom, she is a "health nut" and loves Cross Fit and Spin. Her goal is to one day finish a triathlon. If she is not working out, she is cuddling with her two small Maltese mixes Sofia and Rufus.
