Welcome Parents

Parents Group PhotoAt Walker, we are an extended family. Deep down, we believe that students will thrive when parents, teachers, classified staff, and community members work together. We need you to celebrate with us. There are plenty of ways you can participate.

Dear Walker Elementary School Community,

 

My name is Regina Serbin and I am your principal. I hope you and your loved ones are happy and healthy at this time. I am looking forward to a successful school year!

 

As you know, I am an immigrant from Brazil who has been living in this country for 30 years. I fully embrace my two cultures, and I consider myself a bicultural individual. I am first and foremost a mother and wife. My daughter, Bianca, is starting her professional career as a paralegal. My husband, Ken, is a college professor at University of San Diego. My mother and 2 brothers still live in Brazil.    

 

In addition, I have worked as a teacher, coach, and instructional coordinator for San Diego Unified for the past 26 years. My formal training includes a BA in history, an M. Ed. in curriculum and instruction, a bilingual credential, reading specialist and GATE certificates from UCSD, and an administrative credential from SDSU. 

 

My ultimate goal for Walker is to help create a learning community in which all students are included and supported to ensure that every child has the resources, teachers, interventions, and supports they need to be successful. The elementary principalship provides me the chance to work collaboratively with teachers on a daily basis, while also remaining connected to students learning and growing in the classroom. I firmly believe in and embrace our San Diego Unified vision: “All San Diego students will graduate with the skills, motivation, curiosity and resilience to succeed in their choice of college and career in order to lead and participate in the society of tomorrow.”

 

This year, we are officially becoming a Leader in Me and STEAM site! The Leader in Me program is a holistic, school-wide experience for staff, students, and parents that creates a common language and culture of leadership within our school. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. This means that our Eagles will experience a collaborative, interdisciplinary, inquiry approach to learning. This approach enables students to see opportunities, build empathy, and create innovations with the potential to impact their world in real and powerful ways. I am excited to work with you as we extend all students’ abilities to produce, interpret, and understand language across all subjects.

Another important factor to make school a success for your child is to support good attendance habits. Attendance is IMPORTANT!  Students who miss school… MISS A LOT! They miss the academic and social experiences and connections that other children are having.  Please partner with us to start a habit of being on time, present and ready to learn!

To our Walker Eagles, I cannot wait to see you all again! This is going to be a year of learning together on site again. We will closely follow health and safety guidelines to ensure we are all safe.

 

I welcome your conversation and positive input throughout this year as we focus on our students’ success. I look forward to celebrating our collective achievements during the 2022-2023 school year.

 

Kindly, 

 

Regina Serbin

Walker Elementary, Principal
