Assistant Principal: Dr. Katie King

  • Dr. Katherine King Having lived in Hoover for over twenty years, Dr. Katie King is thrilled to give back to her community by serving on the administrative team at Simmons Middle School. She began her teaching career at John Carroll Catholic High School after earning bachelor degrees in English, history, and education from Samford University. While at John Carroll from 2000-2007, Dr. King taught British literature, was head coach for cross country, indoor and outdoor track, and later served as John Carroll’s assistant principal. From 2007-2014, Dr. King served as assistant principal at Prince of Peace Catholic School in Hoover and oversaw the middle school. In 2015, she earned her doctorate in Educational Leadership from Samford University.   

    In the winter of 2016, Dr. King began working with the track team and simply fell in love with Simmons.  She began working at Simmons as assistant principal in 2017. Know that when you pass her in the halls, classroom, parking lot, or bleachers, she hopes you make time to introduce yourself and your whole family.  Also, don’t be surprised if at many Hoover events you see her with one, two, or three children of her own cheering “Go Bucs!” 

    Outside of school, Dr. King first and foremost enjoys spending quality time with her husband, family, and friends and serving others. She is an avid reader who loves being outside, learning to play the piano, and traveling. One day she dreams of traveling to all 7 continents and 50 states. As for now, her newest dream is to help Simmons students unearth what their own hopes and aspirations will be.
