My name is William J. King. I started my career in education as a social studies teacher at Bowling Green High School in 2002 teaching a number of different courses including Political Science, World History, Law & Justice, and Psychology. After five years of teaching I moved into a teacher-coach position, working with over 100 teachers for the next three years with a focus on instruction strategies, educational technology, and content area literacy. In 2010 I helped to launch a new freshmen program at Bowling Green High School and made the jump into administration as the 9th grade Principal. Currently I lead a team of 15 teachers and 2 counselors who work to ensure a successful transition for students arriving from Bowling Green Junior High School.

For  the past two years I have focused a great deal of time and energy on educational technology and its role in the professional development of educators.  In 2010 I helped create Ky’s largest Ed-Tech unconference, TeachMeet KY along with assisting @2footgiraffe in organizing TeachMeet Nashville.  I am currently working to spread the TeachMeet model across the Eastern United States.
