MR. DON DELAIR

HEADMASTER

I have been in private school administration since 1988 and have served as the Founding Headmaster here at King’s Schools since 1994. King’s represents my God-given childhood dream of starting a Christian school that would… serve as a standard for EXCELLENCE…live out a belief that every child deserves the OPPORTUNITY for a quality education…bring a life-changing message of HOPE to the families we serve. Thanks be to God, I am passionately living out that dream every day.

MRS. GRACE GONZALEZ

MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIENCE TEACHER

Started at King's in 2020. I grew up in Orlando, Florida prior to pursuing my degree at Valley City State University in North Dakota, where I received my B.S. in History Education. During my time at VCSU, I had the opportunity to compete at the collegiate level in sports, where I met my amazing husband who also shares a passion for teaching. While this is my first year in my own classroom, I have gained much experience from working alongside other educators, as well as volunteering as an assistant coach and Sunday School teacher. I am thrilled to be a part of the King’s family and to watch your students grow within the classroom and in their relationships with God!
