Mrs. Kimberly Walker grew up on the flat side of South Dakota, and always wanted to move to the mountains. She did just that by attending Black Hills State University in Spearfish, SD, earning degrees in Mass Communications and Secondary Education/History. During her college years she worked at Mt. Rushmore National Monument and did photography and feature writing for the local paper.
Arriving in Santa Fe the summer of 1987, Mrs. Walker was offered a teaching position at St. Michael’s High School and has been here since. She’s taught every subject in the social studies department, but her mainstays are world history and NM history.
Mrs. Walker’s two daughters attended St. Michael’s. Hillary, class of 2002, is a registered nurse, while Hannah, class of 2007, is a 5th grade teacher. Mrs. Walker’s husband Bruce, an IT specialist for the state of New Mexico, is a regular at Horsemen and Lady Horsemen events.The Walkers love history, reading and traveling. They’re often taking trips to research class topics to share with students.
The Walkers like bicycling and showing their grandchildren how interesting New Mexico is. Mrs. Walker is a long suffering fan of the Minnesota Vikings, but also follows tennis and is very happy when Rafael Nadal wins.
Only 3 weeks of class!
Parents and Students,
Please check Net Horsemen to see current grades and what may be missing. With only three and a half weeks of class left, I don't want anyone getting far behind. I have a lot of students who are not keeping up with their work or have missed a lot of school due to activities or retreats. Email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
to check on your progress if Net Horsemen isn't available to you. I will be giving out progress reports by this Friday, April 29 to students who have a grade below 70% so they'll know what they need to do.
Finish strong! Mrs. Walker
Third trimester is off to a great start. For best success, be sure to do your work and turn it in on time. It's easy to get spring fever and fall behind, but these months are very important! I am enjoying my new classes! I'm glad you're here.
