Welcome to 5th Grade!!!
Welcome to Mr. Walker's 5th Grade Website!
Hello, my name is Adam Walker and this will be my second year as a 5th grade teacher at GHEC. I have been in the education field for the past 5 years. I started out in Truman as a 7th and 8th grade math teacher. While completing my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University online, I worked as a paraprofessional in Fairmont for a year before student teaching in the 6th grade classroom in Blue Earth. Along with teaching here at GHEC, I will also be starting my 3rd year as head boy’s basketball coach for the Jaguars. I currently reside in Blue Earth with my wife Tasha and our two children Hannah (11) and Bentlee (7). Hannah goes to school at Blue Earth Elementary and Bentlee goes to Blue Heron Elementary in Lino Lakes, MN. My wife Tasha currently works at St. Luke’s Lutheran Care Center in Blue Earth. Aside from teaching and coaching, some interests of mine include playing golf, attending Gopher Football games, watching all of our beloved Minnesota sports teams, and of course, chasing our kids around.
I love teaching and I feel that 5th grade is the perfect place for me. I have an open door policy so if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call me and I will be happy to sit down and discuss. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone number is 507-447-2211 Ext: 2201. I look forward to this coming school year and cannot wait to get started!!
Thank you for all your support and Go Jags!!
