Matt Walker

Elementary Principal

I began my 17 year educational career in Farmersville, Texas. I then made the move to suburban Dallas where I was a teacher, coach, and eventually administrator in Richardson ISO. Most recently, I continued my administrative career in the Plano ISO. My passion for education was inspired by the many fantastic teachers I had growing up, as well as my parents and grandparents who have over 115 years of experience in public education. I earned a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as an Educational Administrative Certification at Sam Houston State University, where I also had the unique opportunity to be a member of the coaching staff. Most recently, I have served as the Interim Principal at Dolores Elementary. I am the proud father of a large blended family of 6. Our oldest is a freshman and our youngest is in the Toddler Room at Teddy Bear. My wife, Cheri, has had family in Dolores for over a century, including a great great aunt who taught at Dolores Elementary School for over thirty years. I am beyond excited to share your family’s journey at Dolores Elementary. There are so many things that make Dolores Elementary a shining star. Among them are your precious students, our dedicated staff, and wonderfully supportive families. My desire for Dolores Elementary is a dynamic partnership with all of our families in order to support our commitment to educational excellence, innovation, and inclusive school community.
