Emily Walker was nominated by Pamela Makowski, one of her family members.
Ms. Walker works with special needs students who are working with a team of teachers. The pandemic has been very hard on these children, who really need in-person schooling. Ms. Walker has worked very hard to make that possible. Sometimes, because of staffing shortages, she has been called upon to take on additional duties. Her commitment and compassion for these students really shows.
"She has also educated herself to develop skills that will help her further benefit her students, such as sign language. Parents have told me of the amazing experiences their children have had at Bridgeway, and I am sure it is because of Emily and others like her," said Makowski.
