Hello Thundercat Family!
I am Dr. Arivia A. Parks, the Assistant Principal. I have been an educator in JCPS for fifteen years, teaching at schools across the district. I received my bachelor's and master's in education from Murray State University, my Rank 1 from Indiana University Southeast, and my doctorate from Argosy University. I have three beautiful daughters and a blessing on the way!
I am excited to work with the students and teachers here at Young Elementary, and assist them in accomplishing their educational goals through collaboration, positive relationships, and constant communication. I feel that every child can learn, and should grow academically each school year to become successful citizens upon graduating. I look forward to a wonderful finish of this school year, and am always willing to work with all stakeholders to achieve the mission and vision of the school. GO THUNDERCATS!
