Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Parker Burrell
Hey there! My name is Parker Burrell, and this is my first year at Independence Elementary School. While I am a first time Patriot, this will be the fifth year that I have taught Pre-K/4 year olds. 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 right before this school year began. 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!
