It is an absolute pleasure to welcome you to the 2018- 2019 school year. My name is Scott Walker and I am honored to be serving as Landmark’s School Principal. I have been a member of Moreno Valley Unified for 17 exciting years. I have both elementary and secondary experience, serving as teacher, both in general education and special education. I have also worked as a Mathematics Coach, under the S.A.I.T. sanctions, coaching and modeling math lessons, team building, and incorporating interactive and engaging lessons/lesson design. I have worked as an assistant principal and lastly, assigned to Bear Valley Elementary, serving as school principal, for the past 4 years. This is now my second year at Landmark and have seen tremendous growth in our Professional Learning Community. Our Landmark Knights have many opportunities to consider when planning and preparing for their future, such as what elective classes to take. We are committed to work cohesively with students, parents, counselors, support staff, and administration, ensuring academic and social success.
Landmark Middle School is a redesignated "Schools to Watch" school which is an honor in that the hard work and effort our Professional Learning community has created is now being recognized nationally with the programs and systems Landmark has in place. Landmark is proud to be a “Bully-stop 360” school educating students, teachers, and parents on Bullying and Bully prevention. We are also a "Power of Two", SEED Grant school. The National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform and its partners (Institute for Excellence in Education in Michigan, California League of Middle Schools, Association of Illinois Middle Grade Schools, North Carolina Association for Middle Level Education, and the Center for Prevention Research and Development at the University of Illinois) have been awarded a SEED (Supporting Effective Educator Development) grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The three year grant supports professional development for mathematics and English language arts (ELA) teachers; two content areas that have been identified as essential for keeping students on track for graduation. The goals of Power of Two are to increase student achievement and improve teacher practice and effectiveness through the use of research‐based mathematics and English language arts programs ‐‐designed specifically for high‐need middle grades students. Teachers will learn and implement instructional routines for Academic Language Development and the Focused Instructional Model for Mathematics.
I am honored to serve as an educational leader at Landmark Middle school.
