King, Karen - 7th Grade Science

Welcome to 7th Grade Science



Karen R. King

Welcome to science!! I love teaching science!!!  2021-2022 will be my 28th year teaching.  Teaching is my passion.  I hope you'll enjoy the experience and grow in your knowledge.  We're going to have a great year.

I have been at Cane Creek for the past 14.5 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 started kindergarten this year and Amelia is 18 months.  They live outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  

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 look forward to a great year!!
