Mrs. Shelby Parker

Hello!  I am Shelby Parker and I teach 4th grade math here at Howard Norman Elementary.  I grew up in Belton and went on to study EC-6 Education and music at the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor.  I am certified in EC-6 Education and English as a Second Language.  I recently moved to Hutto in July after I married my best friend and college sweetheart, who is from the Austin area.  We do not have any kids yet, but we do have a hamster and are looking to get a dog sometime in the near future!  I have aspired to become a teacher ever since I was in elementary school, so this truly is my calling and my passion.  My first two and a half years of experience were in an enrichment program called ACE, where I worked with Kindergarten through second grade students.  After I graduated, I worked in Belton as a third grade math and science teacher for bilingual and monolingual students.  I look forward to teaching in fourth grade with a year of experience under my belt and am so grateful I get to be a part of the greatness occuring not only at HNES, but in all of Hutto ISD.  This truly is a great place to be. 

My goal is to instill a love of learning in my students and help them grow significantly on their journey to becoming competent, successful citizens of the world.  I plan to create an environment of respect, responsibility and fun in my classroom so that students look back fondly at their fourth grade experience, knowing that every minute was worthwhile.  Thank you for the privilege of working with your students and I wish you a wonderful year.  

Please feel free to contact me by phone at (512) 759-2543 or by email at  I will be available during business hours 8:00-5:00.
