About Ms. Aimee Walthall
Hi folks! I grew up as the middle child of three girls in the southern Louisiana city of Mandeville, about 30 miles north of New Orleans. Being born and raised in the deep south, I have had the priviledge of peeling and eating the best crawfish, getting the baby out of a king cake, catching redfish in the marsh, and catching a painted coconut off of a Zulu Parade Float on Mardi Gras Day. I was named after my great grandmother and she was 100% Cajun. My Louisiana upbringing has given me many things in life and I know what it means to "laissez les bons temps roulez"! The translation of that is "let the good times roll"
In 2000 after graduating cum laude and receiving my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education at Southeastern Louisiana University, I began my dream of a career in education at Boyet Junior High School in Slidell, Louisiana. I taught 8th grade Science and English during the day. In the afternoons and weekends, I spent my time being an assistant coach to the girl's volleyball team, the dance team, and the cheerleading squad. It was an exciting year to be out in the classroom on my own for the first time; but, I felt the need to spread my wings and fly just a little north.
In 2001, I moved to Georgia to teach at Summerour Middle School in Norcross. For 6 years, I worked with the most creative teachers, the most amazing students, and a community I fell in love with. At Summerour, I spent my time teaching math and science in the classroom, coaching the cheerleading squad, and serving as the Youth Action Team Adult Advisor (the students called it SCREAM PD...Students Creating Responsibility Education and Activities to Motivate Positive Decisions). I was also proud to serve students and parents in the Berkmar Middle School Community as an adult advisor to Junior Beta Club (BMS's honor society), local science fair coordinator, and yearbook committee member for three years. At Louise Radloff Middle, this is my second year fulfilling the role of local science fair coordinator and cheerleading coach. Additionally, I am excited to be a part of the Meadowcreek High School Track Coaching Staff this Spring working with the distance runners! What I have taken away from being a teacher, coach, and team advisor is an intense admiration I feel for students who work hard, get involved, and develop the desire to make a difference.
My wish is that I can continue to teach with heart, make students responsible and hardworking, and above all make up silly songs about photosynthesis, valence electrons, or plate boundaries. As I begin my second year at Louise Radloff Middle School and my 12th year teaching, I am honored to work among such dedicated, supportive educators at LRMS and to serve students and parents in the Meadowcreek Cluster. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you for sharing your child with me and in return I will do what is within my power to help your child be a success.
