Janice Parrott
Director of Elementary Curriculum

Although I was born in OKC, I have been a life long buffalo!  I moved to McAlester when I was in the 3rd grade and graduated from MPS in 1979. After high school I attended Central State for a year and then worked several years as a dental assistant.  My husband and I moved to Florida for a few years and during that time I decided to go back to school.  I received my Associate’s degree while I was there from Palm Beach Community College.  We moved back to Oklahoma in 1988 where I attended Southeastern University and received a B. S. in Elementary Education in 1992.  After teaching 8 years I decided to go through the process for National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist.  I received this certification in 2001.  I then went back to school and graduated from East Central University in 2008 with a Master of Education with an option in Elementary School Principal.   

I began my teaching career by starting the Alternative Education Program at Jones Academy.  The program served students in grades 6 through 12.  My next teaching assignment was 6th grade at Edmond Doyle.  From there I taught 5th grade for 6 years at Will Rogers and then spent the next 6 years teaching 5th grade at Parker Intermediate Center.   

After almost 20 years of teaching, I embarked on a new educational journey. My first position outside the classroom was one as Instructional Adviser.  I also served as an interim principal for Jefferson Early Childhood Center that year.  The following year I moved into the position of Director of Elementary Curriculum, which is my current position. 

My husband, Rick, is a lifelong resident of Kiowa and that is where we reside. Our only children are the many furry dog kids that we have had over the years. They are the CEOs of the household!
