Walker has served IUSD since 1997, and for the past nine years in his current role. He holds two master’s degrees, one in educational administration and supervision from Pepperdine University and another in education technology leadership from the University of California, Irvine. He earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
