Hello and welcome to Ms. Parker's classroom webpage!
This is my fifth year teaching at St. Tammany Junior High School, and I teach sixth, seventh, and eighth grade reading and writing. I graduated from Louisiana State University in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in English and a concentration in secondary education. Wanting to continue my own learning, I also attained my master's degree in curriculum and instruction last year.
As your child's teacher, I want to:
- create engaging, challenging lessons that allow your child to develop the reading and writing skills necessary to be college and career ready,
- help your child understand that success depends not only on intelligence but also on hard work and determination,
- develop your child's love for reading and assist him or her in finding books that fit his or her particular interests and needs,
- engage students in the writing process and emphasize the importance of revision when creating quality compositions,
- and model the characteristics of a lifelong learner.
