Myra Walker

Myra Walker – Assistant Teacher

A Colorado native, Myra Walker moved to Lincoln 8 years ago. Myra has been with the Montessori School for Young Children for over 6 years. She studied Early Childhood Education at Aims Community College in Colorado and at Southeast Community College in Lincoln.  .

Myra loves the Montessori philosophy and the confidence and independence that she witnesses in the students everyday due to the Montessori techniques. She states:

I enjoy the pride they take in their work and their eagerness to share it with me and their fellow students, but most of all I just love them and witnessing them grow and learn every day.

When she’s not at the Montessori School for Young Children, Myra can be found spending time with her husband and daughter. They love to go to the lake and barbecue during the summer months. They also enjoy traveling to Chicago and the mountains in Colorado.
