Hi Folks;
I love being the principal at Wateree Elementary and the West Wateree Early Learning Academy!
A little about me:
As many of you know, I have served as an administrator at several schools in our district. My children Charlie and Beth attended schools in our district, and all three of us are proud KCSD graduates. Some of my other experiences include serving as a school board member, an associate superintendent (in another district), owner of a health club, and as an adjunct professor at the college level. Additionally, I was a middle and high school teacher, and before that I served in the United States Marine Corps. 
Personally, I am married to Wendy (who is a veterinarian), and my children (Charlie and Beth) are grown and “on their own.” We are all very close, and I love spending time with family and friends. 
I own a small farm replete with cows, goats, rabbits, and chickens. I also have three dogs, including one (Archie, an English Bulldog) that comes to school with me frequently, and he loves elementary kids! 
I am a motorcycle (Harley Davidson) enthusiast, I love to read, I travel as much as I can, and I exercise pretty much every day (lifting weights, jogging, and bicycling)...back in 2010 I even completed an Ironman triathlon. I am an avid outdoorsman/sportsman/hunter too.
I'm very happy to be at Wateree and WWELA...where learning is an adventure!
With Cardinal pride,
Dr. King
