My name is Lacey Walker, and I am very excited to begin another fun year at Annunciation!
I graduated from Mississippi University for Women in 2003 with a degree in Elementary Education (K-8, highly qualified in English and History 7-12). This will be my fourteenth year teaching and my third year at ACS. I taught in the Columbus Municipal School District for eleven years (one year at Hunt Intermediate and ten years at Lee Middle/Columbus Middle School). I’m so thankful that God led me to ACS to share my enthusiasm and passion for teaching. I am truly blessed to be a part of this precious school family. I am a BIG reader, so we will READ READ READ this year! We will read novels in class together, but the kids will also practice independent reading. I will reward the kids every time they finish a book on their own, and I will try to help my reluctant readers find books that interest them. I am also a huge believer in reading aloud to my students, so I will always have a read aloud book going. I am super excited to incorporate art into our lessons through Arts Captivating Spirits! I believe that art can be used to enhance any lesson, no matter the subject area, and I am so eager to see my kids express their creativity in many different ways! We will be doing more science and social studies lessons in fifth grade in order to prepare the kids for middle school next year when they will have these as single subject classes. I will do interdisciplinary lessons where I incorporate two or more subjects together to make the learning experience more memorable and enriching. Thank you for entrusting me with your child’s education, and I look forward to an awesome year of learning with my fifth graders! God bless!
