Mrs. Amber King
Hello, I am Amber King. I was born and raised in Grant, Alabama, where I currently reside with my wonderful husband, Rodney and our two beautiful children Ty (6) & Elli Anna (4). My husband and I are high school sweet hearts & have been together for 20 years. We have a small farm next to my parent's farm and we love raising all types of animals. My husband and I enjoy movies, hiking, traveling, concerts, theater, swimming, fishing, knee boarding and anything outdoors & quality family time. All of my family live very close to us and we are all very family oriented and love spending time together.
In addition to teaching, I am in the US Army Reserve, 13th BN ORD, 4th BDE 108TH DIV, stationed at the Redstone Arsenal. I love to travel. My favorite vacation was a trip to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. It was absolutely amazing to see how the people live and I enjoyed talking to the school children and teachers in their area. I am working on visiting all of the states in the U.S. but I enjoy visiting other countries also. I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to do so many great things in my life and I intend to do much more. I love every minute of life and try to live it to the fullest.
