Gretchen Parker

1st Grade

Hello everyone!

I am Miss. Parker and I teach first grade! I graduated from the University of Utah and this is my second year teaching. After finishing my first year I can officially say I have a passion for teaching. I feel very lucky to be apart of the team at Hawthorn and I am so excited for what each year will bring. My goal isn't just to teach but to inspire and encourage the minds of my little ones!

"Teachers plant the seeds of knowledge that will grow forever" -Author unknown

Get to know me personally:

I love traveling (I have visited 15+ countries, some of them twice, The Philippines being my favorite), snowboarding, hiking, working out, scuba diving (I earned my certification in college and have been scuba diving in Hawaii, Washington, California, Jamaica, and Thailand). I believe a positive mindset will help you achieve anything and overall I am an open-minded and easy-going person who loves to laugh and learn new things!
