Mrs. Evelyn Walker
My husband, Tom, and I are empty nesters and we enjoy travel opportunities. We have been fortunate to travel to Italy twice with DHS IB students. In the picture, we are enjoying our gondola ride on the Grand Canal in Venice.
I have lived in Daphne almost all of my life. My dad, a computer programmer, and my 10th grade math teacher had the greatest influence on my decision to become a math teacher. School year 2017-18 marks my 20th year teaching math at Daphne High. I am the Mathematics Department Chair and sponsor of Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society.
Just over 10 years into my teaching career, I was diagnosed with asthma. Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. There are different types of asthma, mine is exacerbated by exposure to irritants. My irritants are odors/fumes from commercial, household, and personal products such as but not limited to: perfumes, colognes, essential oils, lotions, body sprays, air fresheners, hand sanitizers, cleaning products, etc.; my allergens include cinnamon, walnuts, mold, dust, and freshly-cut grass. After an asthma attack, I usually miss 1-3 days of school. I follow my Asthma Control/Treatment Plan. I take daily medications and breathing treatments. I ask that everyone help control irritants in my classroom by NOT wearing or using scented products. I would rather be at school teaching your child than spending the day in the emergency room.
