Angie Walls

“I am passionate about helping students integrate math into their education and applying it in their daily lives. I have always tried, as an educator, to be both challenging and nurturing. Math is present in most professional settings, but it is also essential in gaining a better understanding of the world. I guide students to recognize how math will benefit them in their professional careers and lives beyond Franklin College.”

What Students Say

“Angie Walls is a professor like no other. The first item that comes to my mind at the mentioning of her name is the word ‘considerate.’ Professor Walls makes it a priority to know and care for every student that walks through the doors of her classroom and office. That quality alone is what makes her such an effective leader for students both in and out of the classroom at Franklin College.” – Shelby Mullis ’19

I have always been a person that really struggled in mathematics throughout high school. I was never one to have a connection with the subject. However, that changed once I took a class taught by Professor Angie Walls. Not only did I finally find a connection with math, but I also had a really great connection with the professor. Professor Walls helped me find confidence within myself and never turned down any of my questions. I felt very comfortable talking with her when I did not understand the content. I still feel that I can go to her for anything even if it is not school related. She is so much more than a professor, she is someone I look up to and has a will to help no matter the situation. Angie Walls is truly one of a kind.” – Darian Parke ’17
