Mrs. Jennifer King
Hello, and welcome to the GATE program at Arab Elementary School.
My name is Jennifer King, and I grew up in Arab and graduated from Arab High School. I received my undergraduate and graduate degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from the University of Alabama. I began my teaching career here at Arab Elementary 21 years ago. I taught third grade for nine years and then taught fourth grade math and science for five years. In 2011, I began teaching in the gifted and talented program and recently received my masters in Gifted and Talented Education. I absolutely love teaching!
My husband Ty and I have two children, Lawson and Kayleigh. Kayleigh is a Freshman at Arab High School and runs cross country, swims, and plays tennis. Lawson is a sixth grader at Arab Junior High and loves football and basketball. We enjoy spending time together as a family and love to travel. We are members of Arab First Baptist Church and enjoy doing activities with our church family.
