Welcome to Mrs.King's Webpage
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome each student to the new school year 2015-2016. I am a new teacher to Willis ISD as a instructor for the Health Science curriculum. I am very excited to join such an enthusiastic and innovative team that has a mission to promote student learning and growth. I moved to Texas this year from Kingsland, Georgia known as the home of the Camden Wildcats. I have taught the Certified Nursing Assistant course for the past 12 years and I am looking forward to starting our very own program here on our campus. I am a nurse at heart and have been practicing serving others for 31 years. Teaching and being a part of your child's education is a privilege to me. I can say I am blessed to have been teaching for the past 13 years. I look forward to meeting each student this year and helping them achieve their goals. I will be using the webpage to update assignments and future activities. You can subscribe to my webpage when you pull it up and it will send you alerts each time the webpage is updated so you can be part of this year's activities with your child.

Tutoring Opportunities: I will be available on Mondays and Wednesday from 2:20-3:20.

Welcome Back 2017-2018

 I would like to introduce myself to you. This will be my third year at Willis High and my sixteenth year teaching as well as practicing as a nurse.  I am excited to start a new school year. Last year the CNA class passed the certification exam at 100%. The pharmacy students passed the IV Certification at 100%. I am so proud of the success of the students here at Willis High School. I will be scheduling a mandatory parent meeting soon so we can discuss the Health Science Pathway, clinicals and costs associated with any testing required. I hope you all had a great summer vacation. I will have tutoring sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays or by appointment.

Please have your child show you this site so you can see what we are doing.
