My name is Greg Walkup and I am excited for the opportunity to serve as your Instructional Technology Specialist this year at DeSana Middle School! 

    My most recent stop before DeSana, on my 16 year education journey, came from Midway Elementary where in my two years there I had the opportunity to be in the roles of Administrative Assistant & Personalized Learning Coach. Before that I was at Forsyth Central High School, where as the Teacher Academy Director, I supported high school students aspiring to be effective and inspiring educators and school leaders. Prior to that I helped open Kelly Mill Elementary as their Instructional/Technology Coach, and began my teaching career at Vickery Creek Elementary teaching both 2nd and 3rd grade. 

    I have received a Specialist Degree in Instructional Technology, Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, along with my Gifted, Reading, Online Teaching, and Leadership endorsements. I will begin my Doctor of Education in Leadership in the summer of 2022.

    Family is important to me as an educator and in my personal life. I am married to my beautiful wife of 15 years, and have a 12 year-old son and 10 year-old daughter.

    I look forward to serving our staff, students, and DeSana community this year!
