Ms. Mercedes Parker
Welcome to my page parents and students!
I've been blessed to serve as the Family Consumer Science educator at Schimelpfenig since 2018 and have held many teaching roles and leadership opportunities for both staff and students. I currently hold the roles of Electives Department Head, Campus and District New-Teacher Mentor Liason, District Curriclum Writer and Student Council Sponsor.
Courses I teach:
- Skills and Career Readiness
- Life and College Readiness
FCS classes are designed to facilitate and develop individual students' college, career, and military readiness (CCMR). Coursework intends to prepare appropriate expectations regarding the workforce as well as provide intentional opportunities for each learner to explore career interests, garner employability skills, problem solving, and develop interpersonal skills. These skills will support their current and future academics as students continue to investigate their current roles/values/ethics and stakeholdership in society in the future.
Please feel free to reach out with any concerns, questions or ways you'd like to connect your occupation in a way our students could vicariously explore!
