I grew up in the Packer Holy Land of Wisconsin. I took core classes in History at UW-Platteville, UW-Oshkosh, Portland State Universtiy, and Eastern Oregon University. I obtained my Masters of Science degree from Eastern Oregon University. I was chosen in 2010 for a summer teacher institute, where I spent a week on the grounds of George Washington's Mt. Vernon. The following summer earned a spot with the Gilder Lehrman Teacher Institute of American History, living on the grounds of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. I am currently teaching High School Global Studies, Junior High Social Studies, Junior High Keyboarding and am the advisor for the snowboard club. Last year we went to Park City, Utah, home of the 2002 Winter Olympics! My Husband Loal and I have two sons, Phil and Reagan King, both of them are Pilot Rock Alumni!
