Summer is a great time to curl up with a great book to read. I encourage all of my students to continue to read right fit books that will continue to push them to think deeply about their readings. I also encourage my students to push themselves to read a variety of genres, fiction and nonfiction. The following are some of my favorite books.


Poetry Realistic Fiction Fantasy

House Arrest So Be It The One and Only Ivan

Hidden by Helen Frost Ungifted The Miraculous Journey of Edward

Restart Tulane

Historical Fiction Waiting for Normal Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

Saving Zasha One for the Murphys

Echo The Truth Told by Mason Science Fiction

All the Broken Pieces Buttle Among the Hidden

Memoir The Giver


Lucky Broken Girl

Hooray for SUMMER! It is important to take a break. Enjoy your time with friends and family and get OUTSIDE for some fresh air. It is ALSO important to keep up with all the hard work you've done in math this year so that when you come back in August, we can continue the exciting learning (and not have to review too much). If you spend 10-15 minutes a day or an hour a week, you should be in good shape for 2019/2020 school year.

IXL is a newer resource that we've used and liked this year. Students in the district should already have an active account (login info below). Click here for the IXL Parent Letter that simply explains the program.

Welcome to Mrs. Park's C of C Homepage

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to the Channels of Challenge (C of C) program! I am dedicated to making this an exciting, productive, and rewarding year for all of my students! I hope you find this website information helpful. I am looking forward to a very exciting and rewarding year.

Program Philosophy

The mission of the District 64 Gifted Program is to challenge students with high cognitive abilities to reach their fullest potential, while addressing their social and emotional needs. School District 64 believes students identified as academically and intellectually gifted have unique instructional needs. The curricular instruction should be matched to the students by adapting the pace, depth and complexity of study, enabling gifted students to develop their potential and become motivated, self-directed learners. In addition to the instructional aspect, attention should be given to social and emotional development to assure positive levels of self-esteem. Primary Challenge is a pull-out program that services students in kindergarten through 2nd grade., whereas C of C is a program for students 3-5 with advanced learning needs in reading and math.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison with a degree in elementary education and a minor in Spanish. I have since gotten a degree in reading from Northeastern University.

I've been teaching in district 64 at Roosevelt since 1999. During this time, I've worked as a third grade and fourth grade teacher. I made the transition to start working in the C of C program in 2011. I've enjoyed every minute of my time here in district 64.
