Jennifer Walker of Chapel Hill High Named WRAL Teacher of the Week

J Walker for WRAL Jennifer Walker, Cisco Academy teacher at Chapel Hill High (CHHS), received a pleasant shock at the end of her first period class on Friday, February 15. Lena Tillett, reporter from WRAL, opened the classroom door, followed by her cameraman, and announced to Walker that she had been chosen as Teacher of the Week. Walker’s computer networking (CNET) students clapped and cheered as their teacher blinked back tears.

WRAL interviews Sophia Godfrey Tillett interviewed Walker, and then spoke with senior Sophia Godfrey to hear how Walker has inspired her to pursue computer classes in the CHHS Academy of Informational Technology (AOIT). Godfrey has studied with Walker for all four years in high school, and she said she’s been inspired to continue her IT classes in college.
