Welcome to 3rd grade Leonetti Lions! My name is Desiree Parks, and I am excited to be your Reading, Writing, and Social Studies teacher. I look forward to sharing my passion for reading and writing with you. Be ready for daily laughs, good books, and lots of fun.
I have been teaching since 2006! I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders in both FBISD and Lamar CISD. I graduated from Central Michigan University (Fire Up Chips!) with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a major in Language Arts and Science. I received my Masters in Education in Administration and Supervision in 2013. I am also ESL and Principal certified in adition to GT trained.
I was born and raised in Michigan. We are proud Detroit sports fans - Go Lions. I live in Sienna with my husband, daughter, and son. We love spending time outdoors and baking in the kitchen.
I can't wait to meet you and share this school year with you at DLE - "the greatest place to be."
