Background and Qualifications
My name is Joel Walker, and I am asking for your support in the May 9 election of Place 2 to the College Station ISD Board of Trustees. My qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in physics from Texas A&M and my role as Assistant Professor of Physics at Sam Houston State University. I have a clear vision of what sound science education entails, and first hand insight into college readiness. Extensive classroom experience gives me appreciation for the difficult work done by our teachers and sympathy for their needs, including the essential freedom to creatively manage their own classrooms.
My wife, Laura, and I have lived in College Station since 1997, and we consider it to be our home. We have two children, Isaac aged 7, and Evelyn who is nearly a year old.
I thank you for your interest, and invite you to explore the pages of this website, wherein are outlined the motivations for my candidacy, the issues which are closest to my own heart, and my stance on various matters of public import to education in our district.
