Tiffany has taught at all levels, including schools in Alaska and Mexico. She started as an administrator in Ashland in 2012, and has been the Proud Principal at Walker since 2015. She became a principal to make the world a better place, and because she loves working with kids.
Today at Walker School we celebrated Indigenous Peoples Day with a beautiful assembly. We were inspired by our powerful Native students through story, video, & song. We danced a Circle Dance led by Native Elder, Dan Wahpepah. He gifted us with medicine teachings & reminded us of the importance of caring for our Earth for the next seven generations. We are grateful for our community & so happy to continue in this important tradition.

Verizon hosts 10th Annual Backpack and School Supplies Giveaway Jackson County, Ore. — Inflation has taken a toll on families in more ways than anyone could have imagined. But, there are a few things that still have to be done no matter what, like making sure your children have back-to-school supplies. For parents who are struggling and need extra help with that, the Cellular Connection for Verizon is hosting their 10th Annual Backpack and School Supplies Giveaway. “Every location we have around the country gets from 150-200 backpacks every year and they come filled with school supplies from folders, rulers, paper, pencils and pens,” said Daniel Varela, District Manager for Southern Oregon TCC Verizon. According to Varela, they have four locations in Southern Oregon and the event will take place July 31 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. “We ask that when you do show up that you bring your child with you so we can hand them the backpack," Varela said. "We just encourage everyone to come out, we will have food vendors and games for everyone to enjoy as well.” The locations are: Grants Pass 498 Union Ave 142 NE Terry Lane Medford 1779 N. Riverside 1315 Center Drive “We have five $10,000 scholarships we will be giving away as well across all our locations," Varela said. "There's a little QR code that we can get them signed up for the potential to win one of these $10,000 scholarships, so when they come get a backpack we’ll help them out with that part as well.” They will be announcing the winner a few weeks after the giveaway and will contact each person that won.
