Cynthia Parks

I grew up in Chicago, Illinois and went to a small college in nearby Naperville where I majored in physical education and minored in secondary education.  I taught for one year in Bolingbrook, Illinois as a middle school PE teacher as well as the 6th and 7th grade girls' volleyball team coach.  My husband and I married that summer and moved to the beautiful city of San Antonio!  I received my certification in special education and taught my first two years here in North East at West Avenue Elementary as the A.L.E. teacher.  I am now in my fourteenth year as an Adapted P.E. Specialist and Special Olympics coach, and I'm very excited! My son is entering 7th grade, and my daughter is entering 4th grade. I'm looking forward to an amazing year!


    With the schools closing, the adapted PE team is hard at work in organizing activities and ideas to keep our students active while at home. Please be on the alert for an invite to my Google Classroom where there will be activities for the students to complete. If opting to pick up packets, there will be a calendar of activities. Please complete and return each week for participation credit!

    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
