Mrs. Parker

About the Extended Resource Room Teacher

Who is Melanie Parker?

This will be my 20th year in public education.  I began my career as a special education teacher in Texas and have popped back and forth serving as a special education teacher, general education teacher, and school counselor in both Idaho and Texas.  This will be my 5th year at Star having been 3rd grade for the past 4 years.


I have 2 children who attend Star Elementary.  Matthew is in 1st grade and Luke is in 5th grade.  Luke has dyslexia and is served in the special education program here in Star.  I am passionate about special education students accessing the general education classroom and others seeing their unique gifts. 


In my (limited) spare time, I love to read about the brain and how brain structure effects learning and emotions.  I also love to read fiction, work on my vegetable garden, cook, and play with my boys.


If questions arise, I am available  via email:
