Ms. Melanie Parker
My name is Melanie Parker and I am super excited to be joining Oakview Elementary this year. I was born and raised in NC. I graduated from Apex High and currently live in Holly Springs with my husband, Shane, and our three children, Courtney (18), Wesley (16), and Jonathan (13). I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a concentration in Psychology. I taught Kindergarten for six years at Olive Chapel Elementary. I took a break from teaching to be a stay at home mom. After several years, I returned to the teaching field. I have taught 4- year-olds at Saint Francis UMC Preschool for the past four years. I love teaching children and watching their minds grow. Their excitement in learning new things makes my job worthwhile. During my free time I enjoy long walks around my neighborhood, shopping with my mom and daughter, and playing fun games around the kitchen table with my family.
