Mrs. Kathy Walker
I have worked in Montvale for 24 years, including 11 at Memorial Elementary School. Prior to receiving my Teaching Certification at Ramapo College, I worked in publishing. In addition to my certification, I also have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from Rowan University (formally Glassboro State). I have taught first (in my hometown of Pompton Lakes), second, and third grades. Now that I am teaching fourth grade Reading and Language Arts, my love of learning and books, is something I bring to the classroom, and believe it shows in my teaching style. I can honestly say, that I learn something new every day with my students!
