Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 5th grade with Mrs. Theresa Parker.
It is an honor to be your child's teacher at Crossroads Science Magnet School. I am blessed to be enjoying my fifteenth year of teaching in the St. Paul Public Schools. I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education in 2000 and a masters degree in Curriculum Development in 2003. Teaching is a joy and passion of mine. In my spare time, I have been developing culturally relevant curriculum in cooperation with the St. Paul Foundation and continuing my growth with our district's equity work. Personally, I am a native to St. Paul. My husband is also a native and we are pleased and proud to have raised our two sons in Minnesota public schools. Our eldest son is currently studying at St. Cloud State University with a future career in education and our youngest son has just begun his college career at Inver Hills Community College.
