Mrs. Whitney King



Hello, my name is Whitney King. I am SO excited to be your child’s P.E. coach this year! I am 27 years old. I am happily married with a daughter (18 months) and a step-daughter (9). Along with teaching Physical Education here at HEART Academy at JNES, I coach softball at Athens Middle School and travel softball for the Germantown Red Devils 16U based out of the Memphis, TN area. In my spare time, I love to hang out with my family, watch my brother swim for Athens High School, and I also enjoy RZR trail riding with friends. I can’t wait to get to know your child and see what the year has in store for us!


I graduated from Athens High School in 2013. I recieved my Bachelor of Science in Physical Education with a minor in Sport Coaching from Auburn University in December 2017, where I was a member of the Auburn Softball team from 2014-2017. I am currently obtaining my Master’s Degree in Physical Education from the University of West Alabama.  I started my teaching career January 2018 at JNES, and have had a blast doing what I love the past 3 years!


1. Tennis Shoes are a must! - I cannot allow a child to participate in P.E. class without tennis shoes due to safety precautions. 

2.  Students will keep jewerly such as necklaces and bracelets in their classroom and not bring them to P.E. class.

 3. Students will keep toys, food, candy, gum and other items such as these at home or in the classroom and not bring them to P.E. class.

4. Students will walk into the gym quietly and sit down at their own personal exercise spot.

5. Students will participate, give their best effort, and show great sportsmanship daily.

6. Students will keep their hands, feet, and other objects to themselves at all times during P.E. class.

7. Students will line-up quietly on their designated class line at the end of P.E. class every day.
