Hello! My name is Andrea Jeffery and I am so excited to join the Parker family and first grade team this year! I'm a native Texan, grew up in Dallas and moved to Houston 6 years ago. I come from a family of Red Raiders and graduated from Texas Tech with degrees in Communication Disorders and Elementary Education. I have taught in Texas, Missouri, New York and Washington and this will be my 9th year teaching. I was fortunate to stay home with my sons for 5 years and work in adult education before returning to the classroom this year. My 7th grader is attending Johnston M.S. this year and my 4th grader is here at Parker! I am a bit of a football fanatic, but also love reading, science, dogs and of course, family time!
My favorite children's author is Mem Fox--from Australia, because I spent a whole day in workshops with her and she is awesome! Kids love her too--especially the books Koala Lou
and Tough Boris.
