Mr. Frank King
I am a special education teacher at Challenge High School part of Woodcreek High School. I have worked in the district since 2007, starting as a para-educator. I transitioned to Challenge (part of Woodcreek) at the beginning of the 2009 school year, still as a para-educator, and imediately fell in love with the student population, faculty and overall atmosphere. In 2012 I completed my bachelors degree at Sacramento State University, and then in 2015 I made the decision to further my education and began a masters and teaching credential program at National University. I have since completed my Education Specialist Credential and finished my Masters of Science in Special Education, writing my theses on behavioral intervention strategies for students with behavioral and emotional disorders.
Challenge High School is the location of the district wide Therepuetic Intervention Program, where staff and students work together to overcome social and emotional challenges that effect students accademic success. I am honored to, not only be a part of a great educational institution, but also am privlaged to work with this amazing group of students. I look forward to each school year, to the growth and development both accademic and social-emotional that students will experience, and lastly, to the further development of myself both as an educator and a human-being.
Outside of teaching I am a guitarist and musician, I love to play both metal on my electric, acoustic-folk music on my acoustic, and everything in between. My guitar work can be heard on the album "Ashes of Vesuvius" in the Sacramento metal band called Jack Ketch. Playing live music invigorates me and I truely love to create and display my inner-self through the sound of music. I am a performer both as a teacher and musician. I am also an animal lover. I have three dogs, a cat, a couple snakes. My wife has horses and we began to develop a ranch style home in early 2020. In July of 2020 I became a father and am absolutly in love with my daughter. I love to share my knowledge and experiences and I love to support those around me in achieving their professional and personal goals.
