Hi my name is Dana Walker. I currently teach first grade at Rockwell. The 2014-2015 school year will be my seventh year at Rockwell. I was at Rockwell and then had to transfer to Spanish Fort Elementary School when the school was rezoned. I was Reading Coach there for two years before transferring back to Rockwell.
I graduated from Troy University in 1995 with a B.S. degree in Early Childhood Education. I received my Masters Degree in Elementary Education from the University of West Alabama in 2001. During my career I have taught in Bullock County (Sixth Grade), Dallas County (Fourth, Fifth, and Six grades) Reading Teacher, Orange Beach Elementary-Baldwin County (Third grade) and Thomasville City (Kindergarten and First grade) along with Spanish Fort and Rockwell Elementary Schools. I also had the opportunity to teach Alabama Reading Initiative for the Alabama State Department of Education for two summers.
I am married to Mark Walker and have one daughter, Lydia, who is thirteen years old.
