Welcome to Early College High School at C. E. King High School! I am very excited to join the outstanding staff and students at ECHS as the Dean of Instruction. This is my 18th year as a public school servant. After teaching 11th and 12th grade English for 12 years, I served as an administrator at both the campus and central office levels. My love for learning is insatiable as is my passion for growing kids into self-reliant, powerful, determined, ethical adults ready and eager to lead our ever changing world.
Here at ECHS, we set the standard high and encourage academic risk taking. Our team emphasizes that success comes from hard work, perseverance, and learning from failure. Students enjoy a rigorous and relevant education, with highly qualified and dedicated teachers who are excited and devoted to fostering students to be their best selves.
By courageously choosing ECHS, students have the opportunity to experience high school differently because we integrate the high school and college experiences. They have the chance to earn an Associate’s degree or 60 credit hours towards their Bachelor’s degree, at no cost to parents. Whether our students graduate and move on to a four-year university or enter the work force, by attending ECHS, they will carry the internalized discipline and self-confidence necessary for future success.
