Mrs. Ruchi Giare Parikh
A little about myself....
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Retail and Consumer Science with a Minor in Business Administration from the University of Tennessee, a Master’s degree in Education from Mercer University and a Specialist’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University.
I began my career in the business world; I worked several years in the area of logistics and transportation. I then transitioned my career into education.This will be my 12th year teaching mathematics. I started out my teaching career in Atlanta, Georgia and have been in Northern Virginia for the past 6 years. Since being in Virginia, I have been teaching at Lunsford Middle School, where I was a charter member. I throroughly enjoyed my time there and gained a tremendous amount of experience from opening a new school to maintaining a high level of student achievment.
When I am not teaching, my 2 little ones, Niam (5 years) and Zaara (3 months) keep me and my husband extremely preoccupied. My students do get to hear some of my kids crazy stories, especially if I don't get much sleep :)
I am very excited to be working at Brambleton Middle School. I look forward to meeting your son or daughter!
