Mrs. Parks

I am originally from Beulaville, NC, where I graduated from East Duplin High School in 1999. I was very active in high school participating in National Honor Society, FCA, Spainish Club, and athletics. I played many sports in school such as tennis, basketball, softball, golf, and soccer. I also played travel basketball, soccer and USTA tennis. While in high school, I was fortunate enough to win a 2A State Chamionship for Women's Basketball. That experience was unique and taught me a lot about hard work.

After high school, I went on the attend UNCW, LCC, ECU and earned a Bachelor's of Science, Magna Cum Laude, from Fayetteville State University in Physical/Health Education . Also during this time I got married to my wonderful husband and gave birth to my awesome daughter. I began teaching and coaching right after graduation. In 10 years I have received over $20,000 in grants, wrote a new curriculm, was UNC teacher of the month, head literacy team trainer, department head, Kenan Fellow, won 2 conference titles, and 3 christmas tournaments. I also have a license in Business and Informational Technology as well as ceritifcation in Microsoft Word, Cybersecurity-Essentials, Gateway, and Foundations.

As you can you see I love new challenges and trying new things. My competitive nature helps foster my drive for teaching and helps students see the endless possibilities available to them. I am so excited to be in New Bern, NC and work at such a great school. I look forward to new adventures with New Bern High School students.
