St. Alphonsus Parish School is an accredited Catholic School that welcomes families of all backgrounds. For over 100 years St. Als has been offering the families of Ballard and the surrounding community an excellent Catholic education for Preschool through 8th Grade by developing the whole student in a caring environment enriched by the faith of the Church and commitment of families. Our deep sense of community is fostered by our dedicated staff along with committed parents resulting in a safe, nurturing environment for our students.
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.
