Bio

Hello!! My name is Shelby Parks and I am ecstatic to be your 8th grade Technology Foundations teacher for the 2017-2018 school year!! 

Here is some information about me... I grew up in DeSoto County and graduated from Horn Lake High School in 2009!!  I attended Ole Miss for two years before transferring to Southeast Missouri State University.  I am married to my high school sweetheart, Cory Parks and we have one sweet baby boy, Carter Thomas who just celebrated his first birthday this past summer!  In my spare time, I enjoy reading teen fiction books, watching Netflix, and playing with my fur babies:  my sweet puppies, Cotton and Elvis, and my spoiled kitties, Cosmo and Tucker.

 

This will be my second year as a Southaven Middle School Charger!  In addition to my time as an educator at SMS, I also enjoy sponsoring the competitive SMS Dance Team!  I am really looking forward to spending time with my students and sharing my love for literature and writing!  Please let me know if you need anything or have any questions!  My e-mail is shelby.parks@dcsms.org
