Bob Parker

My name is Bob Parker. This will be my second year of teaching Spanish at MLC. This year I will be teaching both middle school and high school students. I am very excited to be a part of the MLC community for another year, and I look forward to continued  opportunities to learn and grow, as I help my stunts do the same.

I came to teaching a bit late in life--around the age of 40--and now, more than 15 years into my career, I can't imagine any other profession for myself. What higher calling could there be than to share knowledge with young people and help each one acquire the tools to build his/her future?

I invite all families to contact me any time you have questions, concerns, or just want to know what is going on in class. Please keep in mind that as a half-time teacher at MLC, I am only in the building mornings (7:30-11:30). You can contact me via my PPS email address (bparker@pps.net). Or, if you wish, you are always free to drop by in person. I am here for you in any way I can be.
