Hi! My name is Lynn King. I am a kindergarten teacher at Barringer Road Elementary and have been teaching for 14 years.
What do you like best about what you do?
I love being a teacher for many reasons but what I enjoy the most is watching the progress the students make throughout the year. It is amazing to watch kindergarteners change and grow. It is also nice that most of my students think I am 15! 😀
What event here at Central Valley CSD has made/makes a difference to you personally and in your career?
I think the breast cancer walk and fundraising we do here at Central Valley is very special. This event makes me realize what a wonderful community we have here in Ilion.
Where are you involved outside of school and what do you like best about it?
I am involved in the Kuyahoora Football Association and the West Canada PTO. I enjoy both of these activities very much because they help benefit my own children.
What former jobs have you held?
None. I was very lucky to be hired here one month after I completed my student teaching.
Where were you educated?
SUNY Buffalo, Utica College and SUNY Cortland
Where have you lived?
Other than living in Buffalo for three years while i attended college, I have lived in this area my entire life.
If you could do anything on a weekend, what would you do?
I would do anything with my family. Preferably we would do something outside but as long as I am with my family then I am happy.
What book and/or author are you currently reading?
The 9th Judgment by James Patterson
If we were to listen to your iPod or sound system, what would be playing?
What is your favorite television show/movie/actor?
Grey’s Anatomy and Parenthood
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Hawaii, Italy, Ireland…I love to travel and these three places are on my bucket list.
What one thing would you share that people might not know about you?
I am a crazy sports fan!! My family members never even want to sit near me during football games because I tend to get overly excited and hit people.
