Getting to know Mrs. Walker


Hello!  Thank you for visiting my page!


I started my college education at Juniata College.  I was recruited to be on the Track & Field team.  After three years, I transferred to Penn State.  I graduated from Penn State with a degree in Kindergarten & Elementary Education.  This is my 11th year teaching.  My career with the Altoona Area School District began in 2006.  I was hired as a First Grade teacher at Washington-Jefferson Elementary School.  I taught there for 7 years before it closed.  Then I moved to Juniata Elementary where I have been teaching First Grade for 4 years. 

I LOVE teaching 1st Grade!
I believe that learning should be hands-on, full of content and rigor, creative, and meaningful.  Most of all, learning should be FUN!  There's nothing I love more than knowing my students don't even realize they're learning because they're having so much fun through the process.
