Ron King

English Teacher

“The most important work I do is to put books into the hands of children.”

Ron has taught middle- and high-school English for over 30 years. A published author of a middle-grade novel (The Quantum July, Random House 2007), Ron brings abundant experience in creative writing and YA literature to both his English classes and to Drama. His English classes are rich in a wide variety of reading and writing experiences, including both analytical and creative writing. As a Drama teacher, Ron writes the adaptation and co-directs (with Lauren Stearns) the 7th-grade Shakespeare play, and leads students in 8th grade Drama as, each year, they write, produce, and direct an original play. Ron also serves as our Director of Social Events, overseeing Game Nights and school dances, creating experiences that meet the social needs of students within an environment that is both safe and fun! Ron lives in New Hampshire with his wife and three boys, all of whom are alumni of Heronfield.
