In life, things evolve over time, and here at Etowah, course offerings have changed over the years.  Today’s students can choose from a number of classes that former Eagles never got the opportunity to take, and thanks to Megan King, Etowah’s new healthcare teacher, students have even more choices this year.

“I really enjoy getting to teach students healthcare because that’s my passion, and it gives them the opportunity that I didn’t have,” King said.

While in high school, King’s choices for electives were limited to music, art, and foreign language.  She chose art.  She was also a cheerleader for her school.

“When I started out, I worked as an athletic trainer, and then I got my master’s degree in teaching and decided that I wanted to try teaching to see how I liked it,” King said.

King enjoys sharing her passion with students and giving them the chance to take a healthcare class.  Her advice to any student who has even a slight interest in healthcare:  join an introduction class.   Students learn about different careers in the healthcare field which could help them in the future when making choices about the healthcare profession.
