Terry Parkey

Terry taught in Rockcastle County for 29 years. During the last five years teaching, she worked with the Appalachian Rural Systemic Initiative (ARSI) as a teacher partner, working with teachers at Rockcastle County Middle School. She then became a Regional Teacher Partner with PIMSER, providing ongoing, embedded professional development for math and special needs teachers in the Rockcastle County Middle and Elementary Schools and Huntsville Middle School in Huntsville, Tennessee. She has worked intensively with several schools and school districts in curriculum, unit development, assessment, and technology. Terry has assisted teachers in the implementation of research-based instructional practices in mathematics including Connected Math, a NSF-funded middle school math program, and Math Trailblazers, a NSF-funded elementary school program.

Terry has worked with several programs and projects through the Outreach unit. She has led several workshops including Understanding Fraction Concepts and Operations Math Basics. These workshops focus on building conceptual understanding, classroom instructional strategies, and assessment strategies based on Classroom Assessment for Student Learning authored by Rick Stiggins. She was a facilitator of the Mathematics Leadership Support Network for teachers from throughout the state for five years. The focus of the network was to build content knowledge and instructional practices of leaders in mathematics.
