Shelly King

Principal

Hi, I’m Shelly King and I am thrilled to help lead Monarch Grove as co-principal with Mrs. Storm.

I have been in education for 25 years. The first 18 years of my career were in Lucia Mar USD where I taught Kinder, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade. In addition to teaching, I held leadership roles as Resource Teacher at Dana Elementary and Harloe Elementary, assistant principal at Judkins Middle School, and Coordinator of Curriculum. In 2014 I was ready to return to the classroom. I transitioned to San Luis Coastal where I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade at Monarch Grove until I moved to CL Smith in order to teach at my son’s neighborhood school. Although I very much enjoyed seeing my son at school every day I felt incredibly fortunate for the opportunity to return to Monarch Grove as co-principal with Mrs. Storm. Monarch Grove is a fantastic community in which to learn, grow, and lead for students and staff alike.

Your child's education is extremely important to me. I will be supporting teachers and students by participating in lessons so I may not always be available. However, your thoughts, questions, and concerns mean a great deal to me so always feel free to email or set up an appointment to call or Zoom. I am here to support the amazing Monarch Grove learning community.

I look forward to getting to know all of you! I wish you all a fantastic 2020 - 2021 school year!
