My name is Mr. Walker and I shall be your child’s teacher of English. This is my second year at Peachtree Academy but have taught for many years in the U.S. and abroad, in both public and private school systems. I received much of my education in Great Britain, which is where I was born and raised. I believe passionately in teaching and have a thirst for education which I try to instill in my students. It is my belief that regardless of a student’s dreams and career goals, the ability to communicate and think both effectively and critically will be the key to success and happiness in the future. It is my opinion that no subject provides the opportunity to better develop these skills than English Language Arts.
I look forward to working with you and your child this semester, which will be an important one in your child’s school career. Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement. Accordingly, I encourage you to stay in contact with teachers during this time and frequently monitor their progress through use of your Renweb account. I look forward to the upcoming academic year and being of service to you and your child. If you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to volunteer to help out, you can contact me at anytime via email or call me directly.
