Meet Your School Leader
Mia Walker has enjoyed ten years as a classroom teacher and four years as an Assistant Principal. 2008 after graduating from Oakland University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and Political Science, she joined AmeriCorps as a New York City Teaching Fellow in the Bronx to pursue her dream of teaching. During this time, Mia also received her Master’s Degree in Education, emphasizing Teaching Students with Disabilities from The City College of New York. In 2014, she joined KIPP, where she began working as a Learning Specialist and later her dream role as lead ELA Teacher for 7th grade, where she utilized those long-developed skills of differentiation, inclusion, and individualized curriculum.
Having experienced success in the classroom, Mia embraced leadership as an ELA Department Chair and Resident Advisor for Relay. During that experience, she realized she desired to grow her reach to support teachers and student achievement. Through KIPP School Leadership Program participation, including two years as a Principal-in-Residence, Mia has developed the skills and competencies to take on school leadership and is excited to achieve school-wide success at KIPP Mosaic Academy.
Mia energizes by reading fiction and enjoying the outdoors, biking, camping, or hiking with her wonderful husband and energetic three children.
