Meet our new Staff - Ms. Parrott


Do you have any hobbies?

Softball has been my life since I was seven years old. I coach three teams: Manhattan Junior High, Bluewave Fastpitch, and Lincoln-Way East Freshmen. Along with coaching I give hitting and pitching lessons. I played in college and miss every second of it!

If you could be on any TV Game Show, which one would it be?

I would have LOVED to be on Supermarket Sweep. In today's TV world I would like to be on Wipeout.

Favorite Pizza Toppings?

Along with teaching I also work at Aurelio's Pizzeria, so I've experimented with different pizza toppings. Currently, I like spinach, hot giardiniera, Italian beef, garlic, and pineapple.

Are you watching any good TV shows right now?

I am currently watching Parks and Recreation, The Fosters, and The Keepers.

What historical figure would you want to meet?

I would have loved to meet William Shakespeare and Ernest Hemingway. Both are my favorite authors. Another historical figure I would like to have met was Princess Diana.

Are you a traveler? Where have you traveled?

I love traveling and get to do a lot with coaching softball. I want to visit Washington D.C. as well as Rome and Greece. I love going to see historical places and museums.

What is your best or favorite Halloween costume?

Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I wish it were longer. My friends and I went as professional wrestlers a couple of years ago. We went as Randy "Macho Man" Savage, Hulk Hogan, and I was the Ultimate Warrior. We won $100 for best costume. My favorite to this day.
