My name is Melanie Parks and I have been part of the Resurrection family for ten years. For 22 years, I have been married to my wonderful husband, Greg Parks. We have two beautiful and creative daughters, Raeanne and Veronica, who both attended Resurrection and then went on to Santa Fe Catholic High School. Veronica is still a Santa Fe Hawk and Raeanne has since gone on to attend my alma mater, Texas State, which is where my husband and I met. I graduated from Texas State attaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Commercial Art and a minor in Theatre. I also hold teaching certifications for both English grades 5-9 and Prekindergarten-3rd Grade. I began teaching 2nd grade in Texas and then moved to Florida where I entered as a Pre-K 4 teacher my first year. Then, I moved to the middle school where I taught 6th grade Literature and 7th and 8th grades English. Currently, I am the middle school Literature teacher and direct the yearly drama production. Literature and Theatre go hand-and-hand and I enjoy sharing the love of these art forms with the remarkable students here at RCS!
