Mrs. Mandy King
5th Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Mandy King and I am thrilled to be teaching 5th grade at LPES! I started my teaching career in 2002. I taught 2nd grade for several years, and then stayed home to raise my children for about 10 years. I have been teaching fourth grade at LPES for the last two years, and can't wait to dive into the awesome fifth grade curriculum! We're going to gain so much this year! A growth mindset will be a key component of our classroom environment.
A little about me: I grew up on a cattle ranch in very southern CO. I graduated with my teaching degree from Adams State College (now a University). I moved to Colorado Springs to do my student teaching and that's where I met my husband, Mike. We have been married for 17 years. He is a retired Green Beret of the US Army, after 23 years of service. We've spent all of our years either here at Ft. Carson or in NC at Ft. Bragg. We are beyond happy to be settled in Monument! We have two children, Megan (9th grade) and Micah (4th grade). I'm so happy to have them here in LPSD with me! We all enjoy spending time outdoors; hiking, camping, fishing, paddle boarding, swimming, etc.
I'm looking forward to an amazing school year! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Welcome to 5th Grade!
