Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kaycia Walker
I am a goal-oriented individual who is a national of the beautiful island of Jamaica. I am a graduate of the deCarteret College High School located in the cool hills of Manchester, where I served as a Prefect for three years and represented the school in speech and drama at the local level. After the successful completion of high school, I matriculated to the Mico University in the country's capital-Kingston, where I successfully pursued and completed my Bachelors in Education (with honors) at the Sceondary level.
Subsequently, I was employed at Denbigh High School where I served as a Teacher of English, Literature to students in grades seven through eleven, and Teacher of Literatures in English to Pre-University students in grades twelve and thirteen. This experience was rather rewarding as I now have students who are currently enrolled in some of the most prestigious universities both locally and abroad as they pursue their dreams.
I love helping individuals to realize their goals and this is my dream- to guide every student entrusted in my care to achieve academic success so that they can make a positive contribution to national development.
Good afternoon Parents and Guardians:
This week, students engaged in individual and collaborative work as they delved into reading their student handbook. They were made aware of the rules and procedures for my class as well as the school. Additionally, they were taught about the brain using their hand as a symbol to represent same, made a vision board and created a literature journal which they will begin to use the week beginning September 3rd.
Next Tuesday, we will begin the Reading Literature 8.1 and 8.2 standards, where students will be guided into making logical inferences, finding textual evidence to support and create objective summaries. They will need highlighters, a pencil, notebook paper and their literature journal.
I look forward to partner with you and should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me!
