We have exciting news in our class. Ms. Kaitlyn Addison, a student teacher from James Madison University, will be working with my class and teaching my students until December 15. We are very lucky to have Ms. Addison. She is already proving to be a wonderful asset to our class. The students seem to be enjoying learning from her. In the "Files and Documents" tab, you will find her introduction letter.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, or would just like to say hello, feel free to contact me.
Welcome to Fifth Grade with Mrs. Walker! I am delighted to be your child's teacher this year. A little about me: This is my 16th year teaching fifth grade in Virginia. This is my fifth year at Minnieville. My love for this school and its community grows with each passing day. It is my mission to teach not only the fifth grade standards and objectives, but to instill in your child the tools he or she will need to be successful in middle school and beyond.
My classroom is vibrant, full of laughter, a bit loud sometimes, and always active. My passions are math, reading books out loud (Wonder, Because of Winn Dixie, Bridge to Terabithia, The Lemonade War), and working with fifth graders' social interaction through lessons in compassion and integrity.
My personal life includes my husband, my daughter, and my two older stepdaughters, all of whom play soccer. So, I'm a busy soccer mom as well!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns, or just to say hello! Follow me on Twitter @mnesmrswalker to see what our class is up to or contact me by email at email@example.com.
Yours in partnership,
