Ms. Paige Parker
My name is Paige Parker and I am the English Learner Specialist at Pecan Grove Elementary! I am passionate about working with families and students to support second language acquisition. I work closely with teachers of Emergent Bilingual students (EB's) to support their work with your children as they learn the English language and also the content areas of reading, writing, social studies, math and science.The goal is to have as many opportunities as possible to practice listening, speaking, reading and writing in English every day!
I was born and raised in the Houston area and have lived in Texas all my life. I enjoy spending time with my family, singing, and reading. I have two Yorkie dogs named Coconut and Peanut and I have a lot of fun teaching them how to do tricks!
I have been in education for 24 years as a classroom ESL teacher, an International Baccalaureate Coordinator, Assistant Principal, and now an English Learner Specialist. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from The University of Texas at San Antonio, and a Master of Education in Educational Administration from Texas State University. This is my fifth year at Pecan Grove Elementary. I love learning and consider myself a lifelong learner. I am so excited to work with our Emergent Bilingual students again this year and cannot wait to see how much they learn and grow!
