Jayne King, a teacher in the Mount Laurel Schools for sixteen years, earned dual Bachelor's degrees in psychology and education from the University of Pennsylvania. Jayne has been instrumental in implementing new educational strategies by pioneering the district's shift to interactive whiteboards in the classroom. As one of the inaugural teachers at the Hartford School, she helped to chart that school's course by serving on the program committee and continues to steer the district's path through her work on math research and curriculum revision committees. Jayne's students realize their potential in a classroom atmosphere that fosters trust and cooperation.
