Barbara King the Rock Star Teacher of the Month

Barbara King, an 11th-grade English teacher at Person High School, is the Rock Star Teacher of the Month.

King has spent most of her 41 years in public education as a high school English teacher.

Head principal Jarrod Dennis said, “Ms. King is a dedicated teacher. She is one of the first teachers to arrive in the morning, and one of the last to leave. Her lessons are rigorous. She engages students in the study of complex material and blended learning. Her investment in students is why she deserves this honor.”

When asked about receiving the award, King said, “Teaching has been a big part of my life, and I hope to ‘rock on’ a few more years.”
