TEACHER-OF-THE-YEAR, Oakland Terrace ELEMENTARY
Kristin King | Oakland Terrace Elementary School Teacher-of-the-Year
Kristin is a 2014 graduate of the EPI program at Gulf Coast State College. Mrs. King teaches 5th grade at Oakland Terrace Elementary School. She states "I truly feel that the EPI program was the key that allowed me to follow my passion for teaching. Having a bachelor degree that was not in education, I felt trapped in a career that I did not love. The classes provided are just what are needed to lead you on the path to becoming a successful teacher. For me, one of the biggest benefits of the program is that the professors are educators themselves. They are able to give you real life experiences and knowledge that sometimes books do not offer. I am privileged enough to work at a job every day knowing that I can make a difference in lives, which is all because of the EPI program. "
