Hi! My name is Mrs. Kelly Walker. I am starting my 27th year at Brimfield Grade School, which makes me feel a little old. I am originally from a small town in southeast Iowa named Donnellson, which is about the size of Brimfield. Growing up in a small town gave me a real love for it, and I am happy to call Brimfield my home.
I attended MacMurray College in Jacksonville, IL, and received my Bachelors degree in special education there. In 2000, I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Illinois State University, and in May of 2012, I received a Masters in Educational Administration from St. Xavier University. I not only enjoy being a teacher, but I also enjoy being a student!
I am married to Mike Walker, who works as a computer programmer for Bradley University. He has also been a volunteer football coach for the Elmwood-Brimfield Trojans for 6 years, which he loves. I have a step-son, Michael, who is 23 and attends Bradley University, majoring in Game Design. He loves football, basketball, and video games. Our daughter, Kiara, is 13 and in 8th grade here at Brimfield. She is involved softball, basketball, band, jazz band, volleyball, and track. We have three Boston Terriers, which are very spoiled. We have been active with a Boston Terrier rescue, Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue, and believe strongly in their mission. I love to read, spend time with the family, play cards and board games, and watch movies.
