About Mrs. Walter
    I've been teaching fifth grade on Bainbridge for over 20 years, including the first year Sakai opened. 
    My favorite part of teaching is watching students build confidence - new skills that once seemed so difficult can be mastered with determination and practice. The expert at anything was once a beginner!
    I live in Kingston with my husband, Eric, two boys - Liam, age 11 and Noah, age 15 - and our cat, Willow. Most of my free time is spent shuttling my boys to soccer, baseball, basketball and tennis practices and games. Other favorite family activities include watching sports and movies, reading, camping, biking, hiking, skiing/snowboarding, disc golfing, beach fort building and fishing.
    I graduated from Washington State University and my husband graduated from the University of Washington, so the Apple Cup is quite an event in our household. Every year we bet a pie on the game...boy have I made a lot of banana cream pie over the years. Go Cougs!
