Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Walker's Writing Class
I am your child's 4th grade language arts and writing teacher this year, and I enjoy watching your student grow. You are your child's first and best teacher, and I cannot wait to partner with you throughout the year as we work together for your student's success. It's going to be a fabulous year!!
About Fourth Grade
Children have a big transition into fourth grade! You will see your child grow immensely this year, both socially and academically.
Fourth grade students take three STAAR tests, one in reading, one in writing, and one in math. While many students and parents worry about these tests, students will be prepared by the time the tests roll around in May. Help your child not to worry. I find that placing additional pressure on the students does not equal increased test scores.
Fourth grade will be team-taught this year, which means that your student will have five teachers for all the core subjects. I will be your child's teacher for writing, and your child will rotate classes for reading, math, science, and social studies.
About Mrs. Walker
I am excited to be your child's teacher this year! I graduated Summa Cum Laude from TCU with a bachelor's degree in history. I earned my master's degree in Educational Foundations from TCU as well.
I have taught for 10 years, but this will only be my second year in Grandview. Before entering the classroom, I spent ten years in education and exhibit design at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and at the Fort Worth Zoo.
My husband and I live here in Grandview with our two kids. We are active in our church, and I enjoy photography, running, reading, gardening, and cooking in my free time.
