Professional Background

Welcome to Mrs. Walton's Class!
Thank you for visiting our class webpage!  Before you venture further, I want to provide a little background about my educational experiences.  I attended Appalachian State University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education.  My concentration was in English/Language Arts.  I graduated from college in December of 2002.  
After graduation, I spent my first five years of teaching at Fair Grove Elementary School teaching fourth grade.  As much as I loved my time there, I was ready to come back to my hometown of Denton!  I have now taught 4th grade, 5th grade, and even a 4/5 combination class in my 10 years at Denton Elementary School.  That gives you a grand total of 15 years in education.  I love my job and consider it a passion rather than a profession.  My goal is to provide your children with the best possible education and grow them as learners each day!
