Mrs. Sparks

My name is Mrs. Sparks. This year I am working with 3rd Grade special education and co-teaching with Ms. Gregory in 5th grade. This is my 25th year as a Special Education Teacher. This is my 18th year at Thousand Oaks. 

I have been married for 30 years. We have one daughter that graduated from UT in Austin with a biology degree.  She hopes to go to graduate school and get her masters in genetic counseling.

I am so happy to be a member of the Thousand Oaks' team. I have always loved teaching. I especially love teaching students with special needs. I look forward to meeting all of the parents. Please make an appointment during my conference to meet with me if you ever need information about special education.
