    Mrs. Walter This is my 23rd year of teaching in Loudoun County, and my eigth year teaching at Harper Park in Spectrum. It is an awesome job teaching such bright, creative students! All of my previous years of experience are on the Elementary school level.  I have taught at Creighton's Corner, Evergreen Mill, Potowmack, and Cool Spring Elementary Schools.  I have my Gifted Education Endorsement from The University of Virginia, and I received my undergraduate degree from James Madison University- Go Dukes!  In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, exercising, traveling, and spending time with my husband, two daughters, my two dogs, and our two foster pups.
