“I came to Walker’s as a freshman. I think Cicerones are important because we help prospective families get an insight into our community. Personally, I enjoy highlighting the different aspects of Walker’s that make attending the school a unique experience.”

What is your favorite class and why?

My favorite class I have taken is Geometry. Generally, I am a math/science-oriented person, and I specifically liked Geometry because I had a great class and teacher.

What is a unique experience you’ve had at Walker’s that you didn’t think you’d be involved in when arriving at Walker’s?

Until this past year, I hadn’t tried a new sport since I was six. I started playing lacrosse, and I really enjoyed learning a new sport for the first time in a while. I ended up really liking lacrosse and had a lot of fun on the team.

How do you feel you have grown since your first day at Walker’s?

I feel that I have become more independent and responsible since coming to Walker’s. Being at school a majority of the day, I am now fully responsible for certain things my parents used to help me with, like making sure I have time to eat breakfast, finish homework, etc. I have also gotten much better at managing my time during the day. I’m usually at school from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Because of this, I had to learn to use my free time during the day to my advantage to complete most of my homework.

How do you think Walker’s has prepared you for your future?

I have already noticed how much more willing I am to try new things, and how much more outgoing I have become. These are both important characteristics to have when going to college, and eventually having a job someday.
