Mrs. Parker

I joined the Illinois Middle School team in January, 2019 as the social studies teacher and currently the newest member of the Gifted & Talented Program here at Illinois School.  I look forward to meeting the expectations and goals of the program. I am a supporter of 1-1 technology funding & providing an engaging student-centered environment. I have taught high school AP U.S./World History, work-study, financial literacy, middle school history & reading. I enjoyed teaching in Chicago, South Carolina, Georgia, Ghana, Egypt, Kazakhstan & facilitating the creation of a GED program in a remote village in Alaska. I love reading, writing & walking around the world. My first marathon was the 2009 Chicago Marathon.
