Mrs. Jo L King

My name is Jo King and this is my 33rd year teaching chemistry and my 2nd year at Plano West. My passion is for AP Chemistry and I've been teaching some form of it my entire career. I'm also active in the chemical education community. I am currently the co-chair for the Pre-College Committee for the Division of Chemical Education for the American Chemical Society. I am also the 2017 recipient of the Werner Schulz Award for excellence in chemistry teaching. I'm also active in ACT2, AACT, and APTeach. I have read (graded) the actual AP Chemistry exams for College Board for the last 7 years. I am a widow and have a daughter, Becca, who is 28 years old and has degrees from Baylor University and Boston University. I also have an energetic German Shepherd/Doberman mix and a Greyhound/Afghan Hound mix.
