Meet Ms. Parent
I have been teaching since 1990. I began my career teaching for the Department of Defense schools. I then taught in Page and Yuma before returning to my native Flagstaff. In Flagstaff I taught at Leupp and Weitzel before coming to Knoles.
I grew up in Flagstaff and attended Kinsey Elementary, Flagstaff Junior High, Flagstaff High School and NAU.
I have my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Music, Masters Degree in Elementary Education and my National Board Certification in Early Childhood Education. I hold certifications in Early Childhood, Music, ELL and reading. Many weekends and summers I spend my time teaching workshops for teachers on Early Childhood Writing, Differentiated Education and The Common Core Standards.
When not teaching I enjoy spending time with my dogs, knitting, reading and gardening.
