A group of Authors, Illustrators, and Journalists (AIJ), led by second grade teacher Ms. Grace Nall, took on the challenge of making a short documentary.   Meeting weekly after school, the enrichment club orchestrated a story and employed newly aquired film/editing skills.  In the end, their cooking-show approach resulted in a nomination for an Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) Award.

  • Colleagues Honor Grace Nall, Success Maker Awardee

    Grace Nall once worked as a journalist.  Now, she helps young Authors, Illustrators, and Journalists (AIJ) discover passion and talent in the same field.

    Grace became a National Board Certified Teacher in 2010.  Now, she helps second grade students, who are learning to read, transition into reading to learn.

    Grace has a deep love of literature and stories.  At Walker, she leverages relationships with authors to make Read Across America unforgettable at Walker.

    Grace values collaboration.  This school year, she worked with a team to implement Number Talks, an approach to math problem solving that focuses on the process, across the second grade.

    We are pleased to announce that Grace Nall is being recognized with the Mission Federal Credit Union Success Maker award for her efforts to create conditions of success for students at Walker.

    It's clear that Grace is highly motivated and satisfied in her work.  In her words, "I love seeing colleagues and families working together.  I love to see kids' eyes light up when they get a new book.  I love to contribute to school events that make Walker feel like family."

    In the words of one colleague, who nominated Grace for this award: "Grace is an amazing person and educator....  She is accommodating, creative, and dedicated to students, parents, and our school.  She dedicates time and effort well beyond what is typical."

    In honor of Grace's dedication to seeing Walker students experience success, she will receive $100 in tools/items of her choice to support continued development in her second grade class or the AIJ club.  Congratulations, Grace!

     

  • Robotics
    We are recruiting early elementary students at Walker Elementary to form a Junior Robotics team for the 2019-2020 school year.  Next year, we will be participating in F.I.R.S.T. LEGO Junior’s Challenge and Expo. No experience is necessary. There is no cost to participate.  Kids just need to show up to team meetings, do their best, and have fun.

    F.I.R.S.T. Lego Junior is a hands-on program designed to capture young children’s inherent curiosity and direct it toward discovering the possibilities of improving them world around them.  This program features a real-world challenge to be solved by research, critical thinking, and imagination. (The details of the ‘19-’20 challenge will be released in August.) Students will work with LEGO elements and moving parts to build ideas and concepts, and then present them for review.
