Who is Mr. Walker
Lets start the year off right! First let me introduce myself, my name is Brayden Walker, and I am going to be your 5th grade teacher this year at Granger Elementary. I'm originally from India, but I was adopted and raised in Sandy, UT. I have two older sisters, and one little brother, who was also adopted. I graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelors of Science, emphasizing in elementary education. While attending school I had the opportunity to participate in three different study abroad programs. My first international trip was to study literature in Europe. My second trip abroad was to Ghana, Africa to spread awareness for HIV. My last international experience I had was to the Middle East studying political science. Some of my hobbies include international travel, yoga, art, which is a huge part of my life, and playing soccer. I also enjoy going on hikes in the canyon with my Newfoundland, which is a dog, his name is Kingston. This is my second year teaching, and I feel very privileged to be working at Granger Elementary with all of you and building a positive environment. I am really looking forward to this academic year. The way I structure my class is, my class is like a family. We work together to improve our academics, and we support each other. We encourage each other to do our best, and strive to be a positive learning environment. Our classroom will always be a safe place where everyone can learn, and feel free to speak their minds without any judgement. If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with all of you, and I know this will be an amazing year!
