My name is Akilah Parker. I relocated to Huntsville from Atlanta, GA in 2003 to further my education. Since finishing college, Huntsville has become home. I’ve been married since 2007 and have two small children. In my spare time I love traveling, watching movies, taking naps, and spending time with family. Although Lee High is my first official teaching position, I am no stranger to Huntsville City Schools. I completed my student teaching here at Lee in 2010. I was a substitute teacher for a few years before becoming an instructional aide in Special Education at Grissom High School during the 2016-17 school year. I am super excited about this upcoming school year and look forward to learning and growing right along with my students.
