Ann King

Ann King

I am excited and honored to join Irondale Community School’s Team of professionals. I grew up on Ruffner Mountain and have lived in the Birmingham area all of my life. My first job, at 16, was lifeguard at Irondale Community Swim Club. Little did I know that many years later I would return to Irondale to become Principal of the Community School. My goal is to continue Irondale’s innovative and collaborative effort between school and community. This effort will continue to provide our students with great educational opportunities which serve to create passionate, caring, lifelong learners.
