Ms. Parker - Third Grade

About Me:

I'm originally from Los Angeles, where I taught SDC in an elementary school for 5 years before moving to Visalia in 2004. I also facilitated math workshops for teachers inLAUSD through UCLA. In Visalia, I taught high school CAHSEE prep for Language Arts, Math, and Algebra 1. I have been teaching at Central Elementary since 2005. I was the  SDC and Resource Specialist at Central Elementary, which entails assessing students for possible disabilities, writing and holding IEPs, collaborating with teachers, and working with groups of students (kinder-8th grade) in the resource room. Then I and the I taught 7th grade there. I am now at Neutra Elementary, where I have been teaching 3rd grade since 2014. This is my favorite grade and I love it! I'm now in my 19th year of teaching.

Education:

I have a BA & MA in Human Development with a specialization in Developmental Education, Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential (k-12) and Education Specialist-MMD credential, Autism authorization, Administration credential and I have had extensive training in math and science.
The California Standards to the Common Core Standards are in full swing! Our District has purchased some awesome curriculum and we are implementing 21st Century learning. That being said, I love technology and I teach my students many essential skills in this area. The following links will allow parents to view individually how these new academic changes will look like for both students and teachers. 
This link will allow you to see the new common core standards that are developed for ELA, Math, Social Science & Science.

All of my students have an account they can access at home for help learning essential skills in math. They all know their logins and passwords and it would be great if they could get some practice at home.
