I started teaching in 1994 as a kindergarten teacher in Altmar Elementary. Then I taught 6 years in first grade and took 3 years off to stay home with two of my children. I came back to APW as a Instructional Specialist for 10 years. I am currently teaching second grade.
My family members are also a part of the APW school district. My husband George Parker is the high school technology teacher and all three of our girls have gone to APW schools. My oldest, Ellen has graduated from here and is attending Oswego College. My second daughter, Julieann will be a senior here and we have a 10 year old daughter, Lauren also attending APW. We love that our whole family is here, it allows us to be more involved and get to know more families in this community. We feel blessed to work here and have our children attend, they are getting a wonderful education that prepares them for college and/or a career after graduation.
