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 seventeenth 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 involved with developing teacher training revolving around the Common Core, continuing my work with developing culturally relevant curriculum and continuing my growth with our district's Absent Narrative work. Personally, both my husband and I have attended St. Paul Public Schools 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 Political Science and International Relations and our youngest son has just begun his college career at Inver Hills Community College.
