Welcome to 7th grade!! My name is Tammi Walker, and I am the 7th grade Reading and Language Arts teacher. This year begins my 27th year teaching. I have been at Philadelphia for 26 years, and I have been in 7th grade for 18 years. PES is the only place I have ever taught. I also attended school at Philly from Kindergarten through 8th grade. So, as you can see, I have a history with PES. PES is HOME! I have a reputation for being tough, but I truly love my 7th graders!! There isn't anywhere I would rather be than 7th grade at PES!!
