King, Karen - 7th Grade Science

Welcome to 7th Grade Science


2020 - 2021

Karen R. King

Welcome to science!! I love teaching science!!!  2020-2021 will be my 27th year teaching.  Teaching is my passion.  I hope you'll enjoy the experience and grow in your knowledge.   I know this is not the year we envisioned with Covid-19, but we are going to have a great year!!

I have been at Cane Creek for the past 13.5 years.  This is a great school and you'll love being a Hurricane.  Before coming to Cane Creek, I was in South Carolina where I taught for 12.5 years.  I went to Coker College for my undergraduate degree and Columbia College for my master's degree.

I am married to William (Billy) King.  He is the senior pastor at Beverly Hills Baptist Church, Asheville.  We have one son, Michael.  Michael is married to Kate (who is also a teacher) and they have two daughters, Clara Grace and Amelia Harper.  Clara will be 5 in December and Amelia is 7 months.  They live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  We have a dog, Higgins.  Higgins is a 14 years old shepherd/lab mix.

I enjoy reading fiction - especially drama.  A couple of my favorite authors are James Patterson and David Baldacci.  A few of my favorite vacation spots are Baton Rouge, LA; Lake Greenwood, SC; Hilton Head Island, SC and Perdido Key, FL.  I love SNOW and hope we have many inches/feet this winter.

I can't wait to meet you.  I look forward to a great year!!
