Who is your favorite teacher?

Whether it was your first grade music instructor, school counselor, high school track coach or history professor,most of us can recall one special teacher who made a difference in our lives.

Through the Chalk Walk, you can now thank them in a meaningful way that has lasting, positive impact. Sponsored by PDK International, a not-for-profit organization that supports education through research, service, and leadership, as well as the Manzano; Valley and Eldorado High School Future Educators Association®,which encourages students to explore careers in education, the Chalk Walk is a chance to honor those amazing individuals who have made a difference in Albuquerque.

The Chalk Walk is the only national walk-a-thon for education that directly supports our educators. The walk serves to support great teachers of the past and present,while raising money to help cultivate great teachers for the future.

The Event

April 2nd the 5K walk will be held at Balloon Fiesta Park with pre-registration beginning at 2:00 pm. Funds raised will go towards scholarship opportunities for this years outgoing seniors who are pursuing education degrees and to help local FEA chapters in their efforts to support local classrooms (this year we adopted several classrooms buying books and supplies and surprised several classrooms with these much needed supplies!)

We hope you will join us for this FUN event! Free prizes for teachers who walk with us! This is a family friendly event, we will have a clown, face painting, games and a jumper on hand and our AMAZING students will entertain the kiddos while you walk (or after they make a lap with you!). Event materials are attached along with pictures from last years event. These materials can also be downloaded on the EHS website, We hope you will consider walking to support this noble profession - support great teachers, great students, and the hard work both put in to create the most successful learning environments for our children!
