SHEILA WALLER CHOSEN WALKER PK CENTER TEACHER OF THE YEAR Sheila Waller was recently selected as the 2022 Teacher of the Year at Walker Pre-Kindergarten Center. Sheila is originally from Camden, Arkansas and is a graduate of Harmony Grove High School. She attended Southern Arkansas University where she received her degree in Elementary Education in 2018. Her teaching career began four years ago when she was hired at Walker Pre-Kindergarten Center. Sheila states, “I worked at Walker Pre-Kindergarten Center previously as the Family Services Manager but had to leave due to conflicts with my education classes. I was devastated. I prayed for God to show me my purpose and give the position I desired. I cannot imagine a better working atmosphere to guide, educate, and care for students. My coworkers are my family, and my students are my heart. I am blessed beyond measure.” Sheila is married to Scott Waller and together they have two children, Hannah and Ethan.

Magnolia READS Kick-off On Monday, April 11, students at East Side and Central Elementary Schools will once again embark on a special project, an all-school book club and financial literacy project called Magnolia READS. The acronym READS stands for Reading Empowers All District Students. Each kindergarten through fifth grade family will receive a copy of the same book—Lunch Money by Andrew Clements. Families are encouraged to make time to participate in this fun and worthwhile family activity. Reading aloud at home with your children is a valuable experience that better prepares your child to be an effective reader. While students at the elementary schools will read the book, other district students will also be involved in this project. For the third year, Farmers Bank & Trust Co. is collaborating with the District on the Magnolia READS project. Farmers purchased the book Lunch Money for all the students and staff in grades K-5. Economics Arkansas also partners in the project. They helped supply the students and staff with resources to use while reading the book. The District extends our deepest appreciation to Farmers Bank & Trust for the donation to purchase the Magnolia READS books and to Economics Arkansas for supplying the supplemental resources and bookmarks for all students.
