Mr. Parke

Let me tell you a little about myself! I was born in central California I am the oldest of three children in my family with two little sisters. I come from a family of educators with my mother being an elementary school teacher and my father the Director of Safety and Security in the Lake Oswego School District in Oregon. I have been a resident of Idaho now for about eight years and am proud to call Boise home.

Outside of teaching I am an outdoor enthusiast spending majority of my free time in the outdoors fly fishing, snowboarding, backpacking, and cycling. I also enjoy the arts with a background in both painting and guitar.

As a teacher, I believe in the importance of understanding the students as individuals to best connect and address their specific needs. I will create and support a learning environment in which all students feel safe and implement a curriculum in which the students can see themselves as part of. I hope that these elements combined will help to mold students into life-long learners.
