About me

My name is Stewart Parker.  I teach at Winter Park High School in Winter Park, FL.  We are a suburb of Orlando.  I teach AP Human Geography and World Cultural Geography to 9th graders.  We have a unique situation here.  We have a separate 9th grade campus.  I love it!

I started teaching in 2002 after I graduated from a small, liberal arts school in Winter Park, Rollins College.  I was fortunate because my first teaching assignment was a World History class in our pre-IB track.  It wasn't what any other 1st year teacher gets, so I consider myself completely blessed.  I have had a few changes in courses but have taught the AP Human and World Cultural classes for the past 8 years now.  I totally love them and can't imagine teaching anything else right now (which probably makes my history professors cringe).

I am a National Board Certified Teacher.  I spend one week of my summer scoring AP exams.  It isn't as bad as you think, I promise.  I love helping other teachers discover a little more about themselves as professionals and how to be the best they can be.  I love what I do!

I am married to my lovely wife, Melissa.  She also teaches, and I'm sure I'll mention her more than a few times here.  We have 2 amazing boys (4 and 1) with a 3rd on the way (not sure the gender yet).

Thanks for stopping by to learn a little about me.
