Those that get the shortest of summer vacations probably work the most hours, but you’d never think that from talking to Barranca Bobcat Brad Parker. “I love being at Barranca Mesa Elementary School and can’t wait until our students return,” Parker said.
While this is only Parker’s second year at Barranca Elementary, his experience is vast.
Parker will begin his 26th year in education with 19 years in school administration ranging from pre-K to 12th grade. He has seen it all having been a science teacher at Santa Fe High School, Los Alamos Middle School and, “three years in the Belly of the Beast (PED),” according to Parker.
Parker is very proud of how students and staff handled the sometimes difficult task of standardized testing. Parker believes that by taking the tests seriously and combining excellent teaching resulted in improvements in both their reading and math scores.
Plans are also in the works where staff will be looking at how to formally, systemically and systematically use data to effect changes in student learning and believes this professional development will make a huge difference in student learning.
