Elementary Math Specialist

My name is Britta Walker and I am the 3rd-5th grade Math Specialist here at Folwell Performing Arts Magnet. I grew up just a few miles away from Folwell and attended Minneapolis Public Schools from kindergarten through my senior year at South High School. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Lewis & Clark College. My Master of Education is from the University of Minnesota. I have taught in the Twin Cities for more than ten years. My first teaching experience was as a 2nd grade teacher at an immersion school in Mexico (pues puedo hablar un poquito español). I am delighted to be teaching in the very district that gave me such an excellent public education.

        3 Facts About Me

  • I am raising 3 terrific children of my own right here in Minneapolis.
  • My 2 favorite everyday activities that require math are cooking and knitting.
  • I have 1 bright green bike that I sometimes ride to school. 

My hope and dream is that Folwell students have fun learning math and achieve mastery of the standards. Math is a passion of mine and it is my goal to share this enthusiasm with all of my students. Singing is a fun way to learn multiplication facts while intergrating the arts. Give it a try, see the links below!
