Welcome To the Coalgate Hig School/ Middle School Library
My name is Carrie Walkup. I am the Library Media Specialist in the high school and have been teaching at Coalgate for 10 years. I got my Batchelors degree at Southeastern in 1990. The following year I married Brian Walkup and moved to Ft. Smith, AR. where I taught homebound for Ft. Smith Schools and worked at Sylvan Learning Center in the evening. Three years after being married we had our first child Brianna. After she was born I quit work and stayed home with her. Three years later we had our son Seth. When Brianna was 5 and Seth was 2 we moved back to Coalgate after Brian was laid off from his job. I subbed for a couple of years, then was offered a job as Library Media Specialist. I acquired my Masters Degree in the Fall of 2004 at East Central University. I love working here and hope to retire here. The students and staff are wonderful.
