Note from Ms. Walter:
As the long term sub for Mrs. Martin's English class, I find these students a joy to teach. The students are respectful, fun and hard workers. I am working closely with Mrs. Frank and following the plans that Mrs. Martin left. I may have had some of the students older siblings because I taught at Central for 17 years before my retirement..
