Girl’s Education occupies a distinct role in providing girls with the opportunities to lead. Working with families to become a part of this community is a joy and an honor. I welcome the chance to understand a young woman’s goals and aspirations and then guide her to attending Walker’s and a transformational experience.
Michelle Obama– she balanced work, family, and serving her community. There are many women today who are able to realistically engage their intellect, heart, and soul without losing their mind!
English– always. Fortunately, I had teachers who expected a lot from me and provided me with encouragement and support to express my thoughts in spoken word and in writing.
Hands down, Mountain Day. The first time I experienced the entire school walking up Talcott Mountain, side by side and ‘chit-chatting’ all the way– I truly experienced the Walker’s community.
While the admission process may be a conduit to the Walker’s community, watching each girl then make it her own community and one that elicits pride.
Garden and cook! Both things allow me to be creative and share the bounty.
