Dear Parents/Guardians:

My name is Kristin Walker, and I am so excited to welcome your child into my classroom this year! I am originally from Richland, attended college in Southern California, and then obtained my Masters in Education from Gonzaga University.

My goal for the course of this year is to foster a love of reading in every one of my students. I do not use the Accelerated Reader program (AR) in my classroom, nor I do I require daily notebook entries; however, it is essential that your child read at home on a daily basis as they will have a literature response essay due every three weeks. Please note the important due dates on the attached calendar.

I view the education of your child as a partnership and will do my best to keep you informed of your child’s progress throughout the school year. I am excited to introduce our classroom blog as a wonderful way to communicate the learning in class so please be sure to ask your child about:
I am looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at Housel Middle School, 786-1732 or by email at

Kristin Walker
7th/8th Grade Language Arts, Literature

That which I am thankful for...
