King, Lorna

This is my 10th year as a Middle School Math Teacher in CPS and my 3rd year as a SLES Teacher. My students are intrigued that I’m a proud graduate of Whitney M. Young High School and as such, a Chicago native. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and my Master of Teaching degree from the University of Chicago. I LOVE teaching math because it’s fun and my favorite subject. I like to remind students that MATH is perfect for learning and growing as it’s an acronym for Mistakes Allowed To Happen. I look forward to fun times with my Math Scholars, they get me FIRED UP!

My husband and I are proud parents of two young adults, attending Morehouse College and The University of Michigan. I enjoy dancing, celebrating others (birthdays are a big deal to me), spending time with family/friends and traveling.
