Hi! My name is Ms. Parks and I am excited to be a 2nd grade teacher at Martinez! I am originally from California, but I spent most of my childhood traveling around the world stationed in different countries with the Air Force. Some of the different countries I have had the opportunity to visit are Japan, Germany, Spain, and Italy. My family settled in Abilene in 2010. I graduated from McMurry University. Let’s make this an incredible year!
