Dr. Karen King

Hello Daniel Morgan Families.  I have the great honor of working with your 8th grade students in areas related to character education, social and emotional well-being, career exploration, and academic advisement. I have a Bachelor's degree of Science in Psychology and a Master's degree in School Counseling.  I am a life-long student myself, having recently completed my Doctorate degree in Organizational Systems.  This is the study of how we all function within the systems around us, (the family system, the school system, the societal system, and even the global system!).  We are all linked together. Each of us has a role to play in making things go smoothly, and if something effects one of us, it tends to effect us all in some way.

I care about your student, about your family, about our school community, and about our society as a whole. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, and I will do whatever I can to help.  I can be reached at the school, during school hours at 540-667-7171 ext. 73001, or you can email me at kingk@wps.k12.va.us, or even text me or call from 8:00 am- 3:30 pm at 540-931-1674.
