Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Parliament-Swick

      I am a Special Education Teacher and currently teach 7th grade social studiies and language arts.

      I have taught for 23 years and 13 of those years at Brooks. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Illinois State University and my Master's Degree in Administration from Benedictine University.

      I invest time in my students because I believe all students can learn and deserve an opportunity to progress, improve, and grow through hard work, motivation, and the love of learning. I believe we need to appriciate each other and embrace our similarities and differences to learn from each other.

      My interests include cruising in my Hello Kitty car and collecting Hello Kitty memorabilia! In the summer I love to plant and maintain my garden and share the products of my work with my neighbors and family.
