Miss Walker is a teacher that LOVES Reading and LOVES teaching ELA. The evidence is simple, when you walk into her classroom the intonation in her voice connects directly with the text she is discussing with the students in front of her. The questions she poses are “THINKING” questions. She makes the students dig deep about the text they are studying to make connections, listen to each other for conversational purposes, and challenges her students to improve through one-on-one conferencing. It is a joy to walk into her class and see students reading, writing about reading, and talking about what they are reading.
