B.S. Elementary Education Gifted Endorsement VA certification K-8
Hi! My name is Bonnie Parsons, and I am excited to be the SEARCH teacher at Sully and Sugarland again this year (2017-2018). (SEARCH = Seeking Educational Alternatives to Reach and Challenge Higher level thinking skills). As the SEARCH teacher, I work mainly with students in kindergarten - 4th grade. I will be asking students to solve problems in unique ways and stretch their minds during SEARCH classes twice per month.
In addition, it my pleasure to help teachers reach their high abilitiy learners by suggesting materials and lessons. I also handle the paperwork for gifted program referrals and the necessary testing.
I have previously taught 5th grade (in Fairfax county and in other Sterling Park schools - 11 years total) and middle school (math and science in Catholic schools in Maryland). I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Keene State College in Keene, NH, and a Gifted Education endorsement, obtained through UVA and George Mason classes. This year is my 4th year as a SEARCH teacher. I have three children of my own that attend Loudoun County Public schools - a 10th grader, an 8th grader and a 2nd grader.
I am looking forward to another fantastic year of thinking, creativity, fun and learning.
