Mrs. Shemeaka King
I am so delighted to be your child's 2nd grade teacher this school year!
My name is Shemeaka King and I graduated from Alabama A&M University with both my undergrad and Masters degree. I started my teaching career in 2nd grade, at a Christian private school where I taught for two years, 1999-2001. I began teaching for Madison City Schools in Fall of 2001. I taught kindergarten for 12 years, from Fall of 2001 to Spring of 2013. In the Fall of 2013, I began teaching 2nd grade. I am starting my 20th year of teaching with Madison City Schools. I enjoy spending time with my family, being active in my church, learning, reading, and exercising.
I am extremly honored to be the 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year! To be honored with this title for something I absolutely love doing feels absolutely AMAZING!
In short, my educational philosophy is that every child is unique and requires love and patience when being taught. I believe that teachers should value students by building true relationships with them, be life long learners and willing to try new things, overcome obstacles in order to grow, and strive to incorporate effective and engaging teaching strategies. I also believe that a positive school culture play a vital role in making sure that children have the best school experience ever!
I absolutely LOVE teaching and I am looking forward to an outstanding school year!
