I’m Ms. King


I love seeing the smile on a child’s face when he or she learns something new.  I often think I was born a teacher.  I am very excited about teaching your child and working with you this year.  We are going to have a great year full of learning and fun.  I believe in making learning fun so that children will look forward to learning.  I would like to tell you a little about me.


I grew up the youngest of five children on the Smith / Covington county line. I am a graduate of Mize High School.   I attended Itawamba Community College in Tupelo, Ms. I graduated from Jones County Community College in Ellisville, Ms. and the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Ms.


I have two daughters.  Megan (my oldest daughter), Wesley (her husband), and her children (JohnHenry,6; MarciJo,5) live in Guntown, Ms.  My youngest daughter, Rachel, Cory (her husband), and their children (Gauge, 7; Dakota,3) live in Seminary, Ms.  After my daughters got married, I moved around for a few years.  I began my journey in Mize, Ms.  Then I lived in Tupelo and   Baldwyn, Ms.  Next, I moved to Colorado and lived in the mountains at Groundhog Reservoir.  After a while I became homesick for my family, and I moved back here to the Hopewell area.  I wanted to begin teaching again and to my surprise, there was a need for a teacher at Hopewell Elementary, one of the schools where I had once loved teaching.


I have taught school for over 22 years. I taught at Hopewell for 2 years then left for many years.  I have been back teaching at Hopewell for 4½ years.  This is home for me.


I have 2 dogs:  Diver (a 70-pound black Labrador that thinks he weighs 10 pounds) and Shot (an 8-pound Shihtzu that thinks he weighs 100 pounds).  They both live in the house with me about 5 miles from the school.


I love all bright colors, Kool-aide, good food, all sports, all seasons, all flowers and good fellowship with friends and family.  I am usually a very cheerful and easy-going person.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  I will be glad to talk to you any time.  Phone:  Hopewell Elementary Office- 601-765-8568
