Lots of small things! My favorite tradition is probably Mountain Day. For a fond memory… It’s a tie between getting a lunch table with your best friends, and dance practice with Ms. Soule and all my teammates.
This is such a tough question… I think Ms. Soule gets the win for this one. She was also my advisor and dance teacher (7th-12th grade!) and was always around for guidance, creative inspiration, and a smile. She made the dance studio a place equal parts creative, comfortable, and challenging, a balance that for me fostered a lot of growth.
Mr. Barker’s Graphic Publication (aka the yearbook) was my favorite class. It was the perfect combination of my favorite subjects and Mr. Barker is a great teacher, his class has such great energy.
The dance studio, hands down.
Walker’s gave me the space to find out who I am and to become a strong version of that person. Walker’s also challenged me academically but in a way that to this day makes me want to learn and be the best I can be.
Use your voice and be authentic.
My favorite job so far has been working as a ski instructor. I also got to design the season’s staff sweatshirt. I founded (alongside my best friend Isabel) the BB Bulletin my senior year of Walker’s. I can speak a little bit of Italian.
