Ms. Parsons

Welcome to Mrs. Parsons' Kindergarten Website!


Hi, my name is Emily Parsons! This will be my first year at Normal Park as a classroom teacher and I could not be more excited!  Before Normal Park, I was teaching 1st grade at East Lake Elementary, where most of my students were English language learners.  

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from UTC and my focus was on Archaeology and Prehistory. I have a dual Master's degree in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education from UTC.  

I have 3 children.  My daughter, Addie, is entering 6th grade and we’ve been a Normal Park family since she started Pre-K.  My twin boys, Sam & Sully, will be in 2nd grade this year.  My husband and I have been married for 14 years.  Our family has a dog, a cat, and a hermit crab. 

I love to spend time with my family and go hiking, biking, camping, swimming, and have fun outdoors.  These days we spend much of our spare time on the pool deck, the basketball courts, or the baseball fields. 

I grew up in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains called Chatsworth, GA. I moved to Chattanooga in 2000 and have been living in North Chattanooga since then.   We moved into the Normal Park neighborhood and fell in love!
