Hello! My name is Vanessa Walker. I am a native New Yorker and a product of Birmingham City Schools. I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I am a highly qualified teacher. I began my teaching career at More Than Conquerors Christian School. I taught 1st Grade for 1 year. I moved to public schools at Fairfield City Schools. I taught 2nd Grade there for 6 years. I have been with Birmingham City Schools teaching Fifth Grade since I was hired by this system. I love teaching. I love making a difference. My belief is that you learn best by doing. I provide support, support, support, for my students. When they make mistakes, we go back to the same place and figure out where we made our mistake. I try to be very accessible to my parents. If you ever have questions, please feel free to call me.
