Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Casey King and this will be my 15th year as a public educator teaching various levels of World History. I'm an Arizona native and a Deer Valley graduate! My degree is in Secondary Education with an emphasis in History from ASU and I did my student teaching at Tempe High School. I could never bring myself to leave the valley of the sun. Prior to joining the Mountain Ridge family, I worked in the Peoria Unified School District for eight years and in Phoenix Union for two years.
I LOVE teaching world history and am usually discussing it with family and friends. Both my mom and stepdad have been teaching in DVUSD at the elementary level for over 30 years. When I'm not in school or lesson planning, I'm most likely spending time with my husband and our three furry children (ok, they are cats), reading historical fiction, hiking or binge-watching shows on Netflix. I also travel when I can and love using my adventures to enhance my lessons. Over the past several years I've visited Denmark, Berlin, Hawaii, London and Iceland.
