About Mr. Parker
I have lived in Washington and Oregon, having been an educator since 2004. I graduated from Central Washington University in 2004 (BA in History: Broad Area Teaching) and George Fox University in 2013 (Masters Degree in Education Leadership). I am passionate about teaching and coaching and working with students. Away from school, I enjoy being with my wife and son, hiking, camping, and hanging out. I am an ESPN junky and a sports fan (UW Huskies, Gonzaga Bulldogs, Seahawks, Mariners, and Sonics), and an avid reader and book collector. Currently, I've been teaching at McKay since the 2014-2015 school year, and also serve as an assistant football coach and Gaming Club co-advisor.
