Mrs. Park’s Educational Path
Crichfield Elementary (LaPorte, Indiana)
I grew up in a house with parents as educators.
Boston Junior High School (LaPorte, Indiana)
Assisted my parents with all school related functions...from paperwork to bulletin boards...oh how I loved being at school.
LaPorte High School - (LaPorte, Indiana)
I participated in school to work program and helped elementary school children for high school credit. I also taught adaptive aquatics in high school.
Post Secondary Path:
I always wanted to work in a school setting so I attended Purdue University where I majored in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I graduated in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences.
I completed a Master of Education in Communication Disorders from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1994 and worked in both medical and outpatient settings until I landed my first school based position in 1998.
In 2004, I decided I wanted to be a licensed Educational Leader,, so I completed a certification in Educational Leadership (Administration/Special Education Director) from Marian University in 2006.
A Message From Mrs. Park
I believe that every student can learn, just not always on the same day, or in the same way. I will empower my students to find their voice, and to understand the power of their words. I will encourage, embrace, and challenge my students to become the best that they can be….and with this will come success!
