Born and raised in Texas, Ms. Walker earned her bachelor's degree in Rehabilitation Studies from UNT. She focused her degree on helping those with disabilities learn functional skills to be successful in the workplace. However, after completing her senior practicum working with preschoolers with Autism in an inclusion setting, she fell in love with helping others learn how to learn. After a few years in the corporate world, she decided to come back to her love of teaching which has led her here to Lovejoy! She has two young children who are 5 and 2 and attend Little Lovejoy Scholars at Hart Elementary. When they aren't playing horses, cars, or swinging in the backyard, you can probably find them having a kitchen dance party or watching the Astros win!
