Ms. Ma'lene Walker

  • My name is Ma’lene Walker and I’m excited to join the Hazel Park Preparatory Academy community.  My career in education spans more than 20 years with experience as an Elementary and Middle School Teacher, PBIS Intervention Specialist, Behavior Intervention Specialist, EDL Site Leader,  Restorative Practices Program Coordinator, and Assistant Principal. 

    I am proud to be a product of Saint Paul Public Schools, attending St. Anthony Park Elementary, Highland Park Jr. High, and graduating from St. Paul Central High School.   I am a mother of 3 children, who all attended school in the Saint Paul Public School District.  When I am away from school I enjoy fishing, kayaking, participating in soul line dancing, and spending quality time with my family.  I am a self-proclaimed “foodie” as I love to indulge in a savory dish. 

    I have an open door policy and I am excited to continue building positive relationships with students, families, and the Hazel Park community.
