B.S. English, Secondary Education from Appalachian State, 2011 (Anticipated) M.A. English from UNC Charlotte, 2021
Hi there! I'm Ms. King-Farthing, and I am absolutely thrilled to be teaching you (or your child) this semester! I received my Bachelor's in English, Secondary Education from Appalachian State University in 2011. I am currently working toward my Master's in English from UNC Charlotte that I will earn in Fall 2021. I began my teaching career at West Caldwell High School nine years ago, and I still look foward to every new semester.
My teaching philosophy has always centered on building relationships and understanding my students as individuals. One of my favorite pieces of my job is getting to know my students and translating that into helping them master the course material. As your teacher, you can expect me to help you go beyond the surface of the texts we read and understand how these materials both reflect and enrich us as humans. I hope to challenge and support your thinking as you begin to see how literature and other media shapes, defines, and confronts us.
When I'm not thinking about literature and grammar, you can probably find me hanging out with my husband, running, baking, cooking, or enjoying live music. I have two terrible and wonderful cats as well.
As always, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to check the Google Classroom or Canvas page for your class regularly for assignments and updates.
