Back to School Night

I wanted to invite parents to participate in our annual Back to School Night tomorrow, Wednesday evening, August 12th. The event takes place in two stages. First, parents can watch prerecorded presentations from us teachers. I have uploaded my recording to Google Classroom and have listed links to access those resrouces below. You will want to watch the presentation along with Mr. Strub’s presentation by 5:30pm tomorrow evening. Then, from 6:00-6:30pm, Mr. Strub and I will co-host a Q&A Zoom meeting. I will send the Zoom meeting information to you via the Remind app. 
Hope to see you there!

Hello My Name Is...

Mr. Parker

I graduated from Cal State Stanislaus with a bachelors degree in Social Science and later received my Masters in Education Administration degree from Cal State San Bernardino.

The 2020-2021 school year is my 18th year teaching and my 17th in the district, all the time here at EIS. I love sports, reading about history and political science and going to plays. I have recently taken up hiking and hope to do a lot more.

My wife and I, both natives of northern California (home of Giants baseball and 49ers football!) and are blessed to have two healthy, active sons. We love the outdoors, especially Lake Tahoe. We were able to get out this summer and see the Grand Canyon and Cedar Breaks National Monument.

I lived in the Philippines for two years and speak a language called Cebuano/Visayan. If you hear me using exotic words, I have probably, inadvertently lapsed into that tongue. :-)

My mission for the class?

We are looking past this year to a time when you will all enter a cutting-edge workforce equipped with the knowledge and skills to contribute to this world. We will learn to follow through on our obligations, to work with peers, and to push ourselves a little bit farther each day than we did the day before. You can do hard things – I know it.

Personal aside: No one hates social studies - just social studies books. I hope you walk out of my class next spring with a keen interest in humanity's exhilarating story.
