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 this is my second year as an assistant principal in the Tulsa district. I am super excited to join the amazing Anderson team. 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.
