Carolyn Walter is originally from Atlanta, Georgia where she was born and raised. She moved to Charleston, South Carolina to earn her education degree at the College of Charleston. During this time, Carolyn served as an AmeriCorps member for two years, working in various educational based non-profits. Upon completion of her degree, Carolyn moved to Boston, Massachusetts where she gained EEC certification and taught as lead preschool and lead pre-kindergarten teacher.
During Carolyn’s time as both a preschool and pre-kindergarten teacher, she taught many English Language Learners who moved to Boston from France, China, Japan, Taiwan, Russia, and Greece. This developed Carolyn’s love for an international classroom that embraces learning styles from all over the world and has a strong emphasis on differentiated instruction.
Aside from teaching, Carolyn enjoys kayaking, traveling, and watching college football. She is so excited to begin a new life in Austin, working at such a wonderful school with a positive philosophy!
