Meet Math Teacher Daniele Ness

Daniele just moved to Simsbury with her husband and three daughters from Maryland where she was teaching middle and upper school Math. With 8 years of teaching experience in Texas and Maryland, Daniele has a passion for math. She earned her BS in Civil Engineering from The University of Texas and worked as an engineer prior to becoming a math teacher. As a civil engineer, she was a consultant for a structural engineering firm designing foundations and rectifying foundation failures in commercial businesses and residences. She was also an engineer for the city of Houston, where she was responsible for coordinating utility relocations for highway expansions. She is excited about combining her love of math and her interest in engineering here at Walker's. She will be coordinating the robotics program as well as teaching math. Read Walker's Weekly throughout the rest of the summer to learn more about our new faculty and staff.

From the College Counseling Office
Class of 2019: The Common Application is up and running for the 2018-2019 school year and seniors were notified on Wednesday that they can begin filling it out. The Common Application is very intuitive, with good information to the right under "instructions and help" and under the "view tutorial" heading. Students have been encouraged to continue working on the two major components of the application, the Activities List and Personal Essay, that they began in the spring. Information on supplemental essays that is required by some colleges is now available on the Common Application site as well.
