Hi, my name is Kirsten Parrott, and I teach 7th Grade Core and Creative Writing.
This is my 10th year at Beaumont Middle School. I am originally from Iowa, where I also earned my B.A. at the University of Northern Iowa in Elementary and Middle School Education, as well as endorsements in Special Education and Reading. From there, I student taught in San Antonio, Texas, where I stayed for two years teaching 7th grade Language Arts and Special Education.
I moved to Portland in 2001, and absolutely love it! I earned my Master's degree at Portland State University in Curriculum and Instruction in 2009, and spending my free time with my husband, who also teaches in PPS. We enjoy everything that Oregon has to offer, especially the outdoors--we love taking our black lab/border collie, Cammie, for hikes all over the state!
