Special Education

Andra Parks

My name is Andra Parks. I teach Special Education in Room 114 (MIS) along with my counterpart, Mr. Ziska in Room 102. This year will be my fourth year at Marrama and it will be my 24th year as a Special Education Teacher.
My husband and I are from Michigan. We met at Grand Valley State University. We were in the Peace Corps together in Morocco, and then moved to Atlanta. I received my Masters of Education at Georgia State University.
We moved from Atlanta to Denver in 1998, when my husband was offered a job at the Denver Zoo. We have 2 boys; Nathan is 17 and Aidan is 11.
I love teaching at Marrama! All of the staff and students are wonderful. Everyone is invited to visit Room 114 anytime and meet the BEST students in the world!

This is my second year as a teacher but my first year at Marrama Elementary. I am excited to join a wonderful team that puts students and their needs first. I am from Arizona and am so happy to be in the beautiful state of Colorado.
