Welcome to Mrs. Parker's Third Grade Class
"Don't be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try".
I am looking forward to teaching 3rd grade at Legacy Elementary for my fifth year. I previously taught 3rd grade at nearby Hillside Elementary for five years. I'm thrilled to get to know my new group of Labs! I received my Bachelor of Arts in Education from Western Governors University. Third grade is an exciting year and I always look forward to exploring and growing with my students.
I grew up in Loudoun County and attended Arcola Elementary, Simpson Middle School, and Loudoun County High School. I currently live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with my husband of 27 years, and our three amazing children. Lauren(22) is a dispatcher with Loudoun County Fire & Rescue 911. Erin(19) is pursuing a degree in education as she begins her sophomore year this fall at Lord Fairfax, and my son John(16) is a junior at Millbrook High School.
During my free time I enjoy going to the hiking, going to the beach, watching my son play sports, and spending time with my family and friends.
We are going to have a lot of fun in 3rd Grade this year and I am looking forward to the months to come. It is my mission to nurture a love of learning and discovery in my students, as well as a sense of responsibility and ownership. I believe in creating a supportive community of learners and strive for all students to find success in the classroom, both academically and personally. I am excited to work with you and your child this school year. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns. It's going to be an AWESOME year!
