Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tiffany Walker
My name is Mrs. Walker and I am your child’s Language Arts teacher for the 2019 – 2020 school year. I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome into my classroom. This will be my fourteenth year working as a teacher with eleven years at Woodland Park Middle School, one year at Summit Elementary, and one year in Adult and Family Education. Working with skills ranging from elementary through adult education has enriched my perspective and provided the opportunity to stay a life long learner! I served on the board of PPIRA (Pikes Peak International Reading Association), multiple district writing committees, and regularly attend CCIRA. I have loved and grown from every position I have held in education and am thrilled to be in the classroom with your child this year!
My philosophy for learning is to foster an engaged community of learners through kinesthetic activities that breathe life into the classroom. I love running collaborative groups, debates on hot topics, discussions centered on depth of knowledge questions, and I strive to promote an energized atmosphere.
I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and have four children (two boys and two girls) ranging from twelve to four years of age. My husband works as an engineer for Northrop Grumman and we moved from Woodland Park to Colorado Springs several years ago.
