Mrs. Michelle Parrish
Welcome to the EXPLORERS team! We are going to have a great year at HCMS! I am Mrs. Parrish, I will be teaching you all about Science and Math this year. I enjoy teaching at HCMS and look forward to an exciting year.
I am from Raleigh, North Carolina and moved to Fuquay Varina when Jessica started Kindergarten at LaFayette Elementary. I graduated from NCSU with a Bachlor of Science in Zoology. I was a Scientist for the Environmental Protection Agency for 5+ years studying birth defects from pesticides. I love my Wolfpack! I have taught pre-school and Kindergarten which lead me to a career change. I completed the necessary credits to become a certified middle school Math and Science teacher. I have taught 6th and 8th grade at WHMS and HCMS.
I am married and have 2 wonderful daughters; Jessica and Megan. Jessica is a horse instructor (Equestrian) and Megan is also a teacher. We have 1 sweet Weimaraner named Onyx.
Get ready for an exciting year of learning!
