Welcome our new Middle School Math Teacher!

We are happy to welcome our new middle school math teacher, Jamie Walker. Mrs. Walker comes to us with a background in technology, electrical engineering, and mathematics. She has worked as both a math teacher and math specialist for several years in the archdiocese, even serving under our very own Mrs. Foisy for a time at St. Pius X.

Mrs. Walker brings a mix of hands-on project-based learning as well as more traditional methods, making math acquisition fun and accessible for a variety of learning styles. In addition to Math, Mrs. Walker will also teach 7/8 Boys Religion and Homeroom. She is a St. Al’s parishioner and lector for Sunday morning mass, so she is an excellent fit for this new role.

Please join us in welcoming Mrs. Walker to St. Alphonsus Parish School.
