My name is Mr. Parks. I am starting my twentieth year as an educator, my fifth year teaching here at Rogers Ranch, and I am thrilled to start my second year working with second graders. I have taught third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, and sixth grade. I graduated from ASU with a bachelor’s degree in Education with special emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I also have a master’s degree in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University. I enjoy working with young learners, and assisting students to reach their full potential both socially and academically. When you visit our classroom, you will notice a fun, supportive, rewarding and goal oriented learning environment. In this positive classroom environment students learn from each other, and strive to achieve their own personal goals throughout the course of the year. I anticipate this to be a fun school year where each student grows academically, socially, and emotionally. I am looking forward to this year being you child’s best school year ever!!!
