Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Andrea Parks

Welcome to 1st Grade! I am thrilled to have your child in my class this year! We are going to have so much fun! 

When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband, Greg, and I have know each other since 3rd grade. We have 4 children, Nolan (8) is a 2nd grader here at Akin and Madison (6) is in 1st grade. We also have 5 month old twins, Evan and Ava.  

I graduated from Harding University in 2007 with a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education. I taught 2nd grade for seven years, Pre-K for four years, and I am beginning my fourth year teaching 1st grade here at Akin Elementary. 

I am looking forward to an exciting year!
