Dear Knight Families and Friends,

    It is with great enthusiasm that I reach out to you as the new Assistant Principal of East Middle School. I am incredibly grateful and excited to join the Knights Family! I look forward to working in partnership with Mr. Smith and the staff, as we continue the work of advocating for and providing all students and families with an educational experience where values and diversity are celebrated. Prior to joining East Middle, I was an Instructional Facilitator at Mt. Gilead Elementary. Before pursuing a role in administration, I was a teacher assistant and a classroom teacher.  I have had many roles in our county including Pre-K, EC, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades. I enjoy working with teachers, parents, and students of Montgomery County.  

    On a more personal note, I am a lifelong resident of Montgomery County.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading and shopping. I have two sons, Nicholas (20) and EJ (19). I am blessed to have a wonderful partner in life, Darik.I also have three dogs, Chico, Maxwell Vaeda and King.

    I can’t wait for the 2022-2023 school year to begin. If throughout the course of the year you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone. I can be reached at jennah.king@montgomery.k12.nc.us or by phone at (910)-428-3278.

    I look forward to meeting all students and families this coming school year and saying hello to the already familiar faces!   

    Always Excited, 

    Jennah King
