About Mrs. Parks... I have been teaching in Wake County Public Schools for 15 years. I have been a kindergarten teacher, as well as a reading/intervention specialist. I am originally from Ohio, but consider North Carolina more of my home now. I went to the University of Toledo for my undergrad. Then NC State for my master’s. I also have add on licensure in reading from UNC – Chapel Hill as well as principal licensure from Western Carolina. I love teaching, but in my spare time I like to spend time with my young son, Jack and husband Jerry.
