Mrs. Kimberly A Parker
5th Grade Teacher
Experience in Education: I have taught elementary school for 17 years, and most of these have been in Plano ISD. During this time, I have taught second grade, third grade, and currently starting my 5th year in 5th grade at Hunt. I started teaching at Rose Haggar Elementary in 1995. I also taught at a private K-4 school in Washington State.
Background: When I was born in California, I was the first American born on my mother's side of the family. I am half Danish. I grew up in Murphy and attended Forman Elementary, Dooley Elementary, Armstrong Middle School, Williams High School, and graduated from Plano East Senior High School. Jason and I are raising our son Liam in the same house I was raised in (old Murphy). Much around our house has changed, as Liam can no longer ride a horse down Murphy Road as I did in third grade! However, it is very neat to have our son follow in my footsteps. My husband works with law enforcement, my mother is a retired PISD teacher, and my father is a retired Parker Police Chief.
Interests: I love to garden, complete online puzzles, and work on any and all home improvement projects with my husband.
