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:
