Conference Period - 9:00-9:45

My name is Cynthia Parnell, and this will be my 7th year of teaching. I taught 2nd grade my first two years and this will be my 5th year teaching 4th grade. Students will come to my classroom for ELAR/Writing - (English, Language Arts, and Reading).

I live in Ovilla with my husband, Jack. This July we celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary. Jack is a firefighter/Paramedic at the DFW Research and Training Center. We were blessed with two wonderful sons, Clay and Gavin. Clay is starting his 2nd year at Cedar Valley College and Gavin will graduate Red Oak High School this year. We have one fur baby named Carolina. She is a beautiful black and white Australian Shepard with crystal blue eyes. I enjoy arts & crafts, swimming, and spending time with my family at the beach in North Carolina.

This year my homeroom class will rotate classes throughout the day with two other amazing teachers. This teaching team consist of Mrs. Bravenec teaching Science & Social Studies and Mrs. Pickard teaching Math. We are so excited about the 2018-2019 school year! We have so many exciting things planned to engage and challenge our students. I believe that a strong relationship between school and home is essential for our students' success. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
