Parsons Hills Elementary: Garden Improvement Campaign
Hi! I'm Mercedes Webb and I teach 4th grade! I have been at Parson Hills for 2 years. Last year I taught 5th grade and I taught 3rd grade in Chicago for a year. I was born and raised in El Dorado Arkansas and attended the University of Central Arkansas for a year before moving to Northeastern Illinois University. There I doubled majored in Elementary Education and Psychology. I graduated in May 2016 with dual bachelor's degrees and had my beautiful daughter that June! Adalynn attends Parson Hills in our Pre-K program and loves every minute. I have enjoyed getting to know each and every student here in this building and I can't wait to see what my future at Parson Hills holds!
Hello! My name is Amy Ritchey and I am the Resource Teacher at Parson Hills.
I have been fortunate to live and teach in some lovely and diverse places, including California, Houston, and Bangkok, Thailand. I moved to Northwest Arkansas four years ago, teaching at Shaw Elementary for two years before coming to Parson Hills.
I graduated from Texas A&M Kingsville with a degree in Elementary Education. I completed Master work in Special Education at California State University, and received a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.
I am doggie mom to Dutchess and step-mom to Jackson, who is a senior at Fayetteville High School. I come from a very large Texas family – I am the youngest of six siblings and I have 17 nieces and nephews, 6 great-nephews and 4 great-nieces.
I love being a Panther!
Hello! I’m Shelbi Raines and I am the Gifted and Talented Facilitator at Parson Hills! I graduated from the University of Arkansas with my first Masters, and from Arkansas State University with my second Masters in Gifted and Talented Education. This summer I married Mr. Raines in New Zealand! I love to laugh, watch netflix, travel, ride horses, take pictures, play paintball, craft, crochet, macrame, and read! My goal is to provide a challenge for all of my students, and help them reach their potential socially, emotionally, and academically! I am excited to be part of the Parson HIlls family!
