Mrs. Parker

3rd Grade

May the force be with room 8!

My name is Jill Parker and I am honored to be your child's third grade teacher this school year. I am entering my 14th year of teaching...all have been in third grade here at Wea Ridge Elementary! My husband, Jimmy, and I have two boys: Brett (3rd Grader) and Brady (Kindergartner). My boys are also Timberwolves! We are big Boilermaker, Packer, and Reds' fans and enjoy sports, music, and traveling together. We most recently enjoyed a family trip to Minnesota, full of fishing, boat riding, and enjoying campfires. I cherish our time spent together...we even splashed around in the headwaters of the Mississippi River located in Itasca State Park.

Third grade is an amazing year as students become more independent learners and grow dramatically from the start to finish. Flexible seating is fostered for a better learning environment with a variety of ways to interact with one another. I have adopted a Star Wars theme in the classroom to add excitement to our days together...after becoming a fanatic with my boys.
