Mr. Donovan King
My name is Coach King, I am entering my first year as the Defensive Coordinator and PE teacher here at COHS. I am entering my 8th year coaching and teaching. I am coming to Coldspring HS from New Diana, where I was the Defensive Coordinator and I taught Government/Economics. I have made also coaching stops Fort Bend Ridge Point HS, and East Bernard HS. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to join a district with such rich tradition and be able to pour into the lives of the young men and women here on campus.
Originally, I am from a small community very similar to this one in Altair, TX. I graduated from Rice Consolidated. I received a scholarship to play football at Texas State University where I was a 4 year lettermen, all conference, and a team caption. I received a Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a minor in Excercise Sports Science. I received a Masters of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling from Texas Tech University. I received my Principal Certification and training from Lamar University. Prior to entering education, I spent three years as a Mental Health Associate at a residential treatment facility and three years as a Career Counselor at Job Corps in San Marcos. Although those were very fulfilling jobs, I made the transition from counseling to education to carry out a greater calling. Life's adversity has placed me in a situation to be able to mentor young men, and I'm just trying to walk in my purpose.
