Hi! My name is Suzy Parrett and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Rocklin Academy Gateway. This will be my fourth year in 3rd grade with the organization and my 9th year teaching, and I couldn’t be more excited to get started! I grew up in Modesto, CA. After spending some time at Fresno State and San Francisco State University, where I received my BA in Liberal Studies. I relocated to Sacramento, where I attended Sacramento State University and received my teaching credential. After graduation, I traveled across the United States and settled on the coast of North Carolina. Here I worked in education for 4 years at a wonderful charter school. It was there that I developed my love of the charter school model and everything that it stood for. When I moved back to California, I searched for a place that held the same values and high standards for teachers and students… my search led me to Rocklin Academy.
Currently, I live in the Roseville area with my 3 year old Labrador, named Lucy, and my husband. We enjoy being outdoors, exercising, and spending time with friends and our extended family. I am finishing up my Master’s Degree in School Leadership and Administration and hope to graduate soon.
I love working for Rocklin Academy. I can honestly say that in my career my colleagues and administrators are some of the most talented teachers I have ever had the privilege to call my peers. I believe that all students can learn and need a safe, nurturing place to open their minds to grow. I hope to build such a place in my classroom and help develop responsible, confident, students who develop a love and passion for learning. I welcome family involvement and hope to build positive working relationships with all my parents and families. I look forward to working with another amazing group of students and families and know this will be another fantastic year in third grade!
