Subjects Taught
First Grade


I obtained a BS in Education from Blue Mountain College, Blue Mountain, Mississippi.  I graduated summa cum laude of my 1993 class.  I was also voted as the class President for all years to come.  I pursued my masters in reading from the University of San Diego, California.  I am certified as a Susan Barton dyslexic tutor, and tester. 


 I have taught mostly first grade, but I have also taught 2nd, 3rd, Art for all grades, Journalism for 10th - 12th, and Bible.  I have specialty training in dyslexia.  My daughter and I both are dyslexic!  This gives me great advantages with teaching reading to first graders! I have taught in the states of Mississippi and Arkansas.  I have taught in both private and public settings. I took time off from teaching when my children were young to stay at home with them.


 I love my Lord Jesus.  I also have a deep love to see children learn to read.  First grade has become a love because this is where I get to see reading happen!  I have been married for over 26 years to the love of my life, Dr. Steven E. Walter.  He is the lead pastor at Moffett Road Baptist Church.  This is what brought us to Mobile. We have three amazing children.  Katie is our oldest, and she is pursuing work over seas in missions. Jordan, our only son, is pursuing a degree in teaching and coaching. Our baby, Molly Rae, is at Baker High School.  I enjoy working out, singing in my church choir and working in/with the church, when I am not busy with first grade!
