Biographical Information

Parental involvement is an essential component of fifth-grade teacher Subrina Owens Parker's instructional approach at Kiptopeke Elementary School in Cape Charles. She sends letters to parents before each school year, introducing her classroom goals. During the school year, Miss Parker sends home weekly progress reports and invites parents to schoolwide events such as the "Make-It-Take-It Workshop" and "Family Fun Day." These events bring parents and children together to dine and participate in various hands-on educational activities. Having been an at-risk student herself in the rural school system where she now teaches, Miss Parker instills in her students the belief that if she succeeded, so can they.

The 2013-2014 school year will be Miss Parker's first year as Principal at Kiptopeke Elementary School.
