Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Parker Burrell

My name is Parker Burrell! This is my second year here at Independence Elementary but will be the sixth year teaching. I studied Human Development and Family Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, earning my Bachelors in Birth through Kindergarten licensure.  

I was born and raised in Gastonia, NC, but went to Greensboro for College and headed to Columbia, SC afterwards. After 12 years of being away, I finally settled back down in Belmont, NC.  At home, it is just me and my two cats, Lu and Oli.

When I’m not teaching, I love to spend time with family and friends, do a bit of gaming (Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, and The Sims), and listen to music. I’m so excited to be your child’s teacher this year!
