Coordinator of Clinical Education
Dr. King began her career teaching intermediate grades in elementary schools near Syracuse and Buffalo (NY) and Durham (NC). She owned and operated a preschool then taught computer skills for children and teachers in a K-5 building near Raleigh (NC). Following an elective course in instructional design, she became interested in educational technology and training/development in business and industry. After graduate school, she worked as the training manager in a mid-size Department of Energy research laboratory outside of Denver. As the training manager, she was responsible for developing and coordinating training sessions in safety, staff development, employee orientation, and management development. During that time, she became interested in the development of skills and how adults are able to use (or ignore) those skills in the workplace. She has supervised final interns in Sarasota County for the past four years. In coordinating the field experiences program at USF Sarasota-Manatee, she works to facilitate the development of skills and their transfer to the classroom. As a research area, she is particularly interested in teaching practices and how the culture of the school helps and hinders peoples’ performances, both learners and teachers.
