Walters began her teaching career at Judson High School, where she specialized in at-risk students. After five years at Judson, Walters took an 18-month sabbatical to stay home with her two children. Following her sabbatical, Walters spent two years teaching at Harvest Schools, a private Christian school district.
In 2006, Walters joined Northside ISD and spent two years at her alma mater, John Jay High School, and two years at Brandeis High School when it opened in 2008. It was during this time at Northside that Walters rekindled her love for the game of soccer and joined the coaching staff as an assistant coach.
When Walters decided to move back into the private school sector as her daughter went into middle school, she took a position as the Head Girls Soccer Coach and middle school P.E. teacher at San Antonio Christian School. At SACS, Walters led the girls soccer team for seven years, with a record of 107-55-14. The team made five Final Four appearances in the TAPPS Division 2 state playoffs and brought home the State Championship in 2015.
In 2018, Walters’ first year at Champion, the Lady Chargers went 20-3-3 and advanced to the fourth round of playoffs. In 2019, the team went 23-4-0.
Walters’ lifelong passion for teaching can be seen both in the classroom and on the field. She believes having a growth-mindset is critical for teachers and students alike and is constantly looking for ways to learn and do things better.
