Hello and welcome to my classroom. I am very excited about the start of a new school year. This is my 20th year teaching and my 18th 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 21 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
