About Nadene:

Hi there! I'm Nadene King, a dedicated educator with over 25 years of teaching experience, including more than 10 years in differentiated instruction classes. Born in Southern California, I made a move to Buffalo, NY for about three and a half years, I came back to my hometown a few years ago because I missed the sunshine! My passions extend beyond the classroom to painting, crafting, and jewelry making. I hold not one, but two masters - one in higher education with a minor in math and the other in mental health and wellness. What I love most about teaching is witnessing that “light bulb” moment in my students, the moment they understand a concept. It's the most gratifying part of my job!
