Mrs. Nora Parrish

Mrs. Parrish is thrilled to be part of Hovatter Elementary as a third grade teacher. This will be Mrs. Parrish’s 12th year as an elementary teacher!

Before coming to LCPS three years ago, Mrs. Parrish spent nine years teaching in DC Public Schools. Her diverse experiences have led her to value the importance of implementing a rigorous curriculum while fostering curiosity in students, so they feel confident taking risks and trying new things. She believes creating a strong teacher-family partnership is important and understands the privilege she is granted to be a part of her students’ stories. Mrs. Parrish is a local Willowsford resident and resides with her husband (also a teacher!), their twin girls, and their special Siberian husky. She graduated from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and earned a Master’s of Teaching from American University. She is very proud to call NOVA her home!

Mrs. Parrish enjoys getting outside, goal-setting, and spending time at her family home in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Mrs. Parrish loves being able to contribute to the Hovatter community!
