Welcome Mr. James Walker, Assistant Principal!

My name is James Walker, and I am beginning my 21st year in education. I completed my undergraduate degree in Music Education at Limestone College and earned my Master’s degree in School Administration from Gardner-Webb University. I taught band/chorus/general music in Rutherford County for seventeen years before coming to Grover Elementary as Assistant Principal for two years. In 2018, I served as Assistant Principal at Shelby Intermediate, and am now proud to be Assistant Principal on the James Love team!

My wife Gretchen is an EC teacher at Forest City-Dunbar Elementary in Rutherford County. We have two adult children and this year we welcomed our first grandchild!

I am active in my church where I teach Sunday School and serve as Choir Director. I am also a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan!

I am looking forward to seeing your student achieve success this year at James Love. Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone (704-476-8385) or email (jmwalker@clevelandcountyschools.org) if I can do anything to help your child succeed!

Assistant Principal
