I currently live and work in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I began my teaching career with Tulsa Public Schools in 2006 and currently serve as the principal of Marian Anderson Elementary School.
I believe in leveraging leadership and engaging in work together as a team and am always amazed by the work we do and the progress we make each year.
Our students drive my passion because I was one of them. I graduated from Memorial High School and attended the University of Tulsa, majoring in Elementary and Communications. I received my masters in Special Education at Oklahoma State University and am currently pursuing my Doctorate in Education Administration and Leadership.
Hello! My name is Andrea Parks, and I have been assistant principal at Anderson since 2019. Before getting my certification as an administrator (from University of Oklahoma - Tulsa) I taught for seven years in Union Public Schools and 7 years at Riverfield Country Day school. I graduated in 2004, from Oklahoma State University, with a B. S. in Elementary Education with additional endorsements in Early Childhood and Middle Level Science.
