Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Jim Parker

My name is Mr. Jim Parker and have taught for 20 years, with many of those years being in first grade.  I have taught in the Wellston School District, Imagine Academy of Environmental Science and Mathematics, Al Manara Academy, and at Grannemann Elementary. This is the start of my 4th year here at Grannemann.  My philosophy of education is relationship building and getting to know the families I work with for success in the classroom.  Outside of teaching I enjoy reading, especially John Grisham novels, and spending time with my family, my wife and my 5 adopted children.
