Michael King teaches Advanced Humanities at The Grayson School. He earned a Master of Arts in English & Literature from the University of Michigan. He has teaching experience at the collegiate and high school level including Santa Clara University in California, Emmanuel College in Boston, and Continental Theological Seminary in Brussels, Belgium.
Mr. King encourages students to cultivate a lifelong habit of literary exploration as one way to help satisfy curiosity about themselves and the world around them. He also encourages students to become active, curious, and fearless writers through both expository and imaginative writing.
Mr. King values volunteer work. One example of his volunteer work was his time being a visiting instructor at a federal prison in Michigan where he helped inmates write, rehearse, and perform original plays as a part of their English G.E.D curriculum. Mr. King also provided social and academic support for youth at The Attic Youth Center in Philadelphia. His experience supporting the youth of Philadelphia continued at WHYY Youth Journalism where he helped students develop and produce news stories for video, audio, and print.
Outside of the classroom, Mr. King enjoys a myriad of activities including playing the french horn, being an avid fan of Walt Whitman, wrangling chipmunks, and many more.
