Sra. Parkin

Dear parents and students,


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Maria Parkin, and I will be your child’s teacher at Robert Warren Middle School. For many years I have been working with the CBE in various areas and divisions. Most recently my teaching assignments were in the Spanish Bilingual Program grades 7-9.

I was born and raised in the north of Argentina, in a city called Salta. I have traveled to many South American countries including Mexico, Peru, Bolivia and Chile. I have also been to other countries such as Thailand, where I had an amazing experience teaching young children.

My priority as a teacher is to meet each child’s potential, for I believe that each one is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating environment to grow emotionally, intellectually, and socially. Therefore, I make every effort to provide a safe classroom and motivate them towards a level of independence where they can develop their desire to learn and think for themselves. Teaching is my passion, so I try to put into my classroom the joy that I discovered while learning and teaching.

Courses that I teach:

Grade 7 Science- Grade 6 Spanish Language Arts Grade 6 Arts.

Course outlines course material are available in my Google Classroom.

Here are the links:

Grade 7-2 7-3 Science:

Grade 6-2-6-3 Spanish Language Arts :

 Grade 6 Arts TBA

Bi- weekly summary of what we are doing in class and assignments due dates will be posted in Google Classroom Announcements.

Grades will be posted in Power School.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child.

Kind regards,

Maria Parkin
