Mrs. Narishea Parham, Associate Principal

Welcome to Richton Square School.  I am the Associate Principal at Richton Square School.  I am entering my 16th year in education.  I truly look forward to working with all of the children and their families to make this a spectacular school year. 

Prior to serving as Associate Principal at Richton Square I was a Dean of Students at Gompers Jr. High in Joliet School District 86 for three years, a literacy coach in Elemenary School District 159 for a year, a 6th grade English/Reading teacher at Shoop Math, Science, and Technology in Chicago Public Schools for three years, and I taught 5th grade along with 6th-8th grade Social Studies and Speech Communications within Elementary School District 159 for five years.  

During my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, being outdoors, and participating in 5K, 8K, 10K, and half marathon races. 

The partnership between schools and home is essential please work with your child's teacher to keep the lines of communication open and positive; and don't hesitate to call me at any time to help set up a meeting, share a concern or let me know how I can better help your child have a positive learning experience and reach success.

"EXCELLENCE is our expectation."
