  • Hello and welcome to my classroom. I am very excited about the start of a new school year. This is my 21st year teaching and my 19th year at Abney Elementary.  I am orginally from Long Island, New York but have lived throughout the country.  I have lived here in Slidell for 22 years.  I have 3 sons, one grandson and a dog.

    I have a Bachelor's degree from the State University of New York in Elementary Education and Masters in Reading Degree from Adelphi University in New York.  In my spare time I enjoy gardening, cooking, crafts and the beach.

    My goal is to provide a curriculum where each child can and will grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and creatively, guided by the Louisisana Common Core Standards.  I strive to provide instruction and an environment where each child will do the following:

    * Develop a sense of respect for self and others

    *Acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes about the physical and social world through varied experiences

    *Enjoy an enviornment rich in print, which will foster literacy

    * Acquire a love of language, reading, writing, speaking and listening

    I look forward to us working together to provide your child with a memorable and rewarding year.  My door is always open for any question or concerns you may have.

    Mrs. Janice Parker
