Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Corey Parks

My name is Corey Parks. I am from Alton, Illinois (born and raised) and graduated from Alton High School in 2013. I received my Associates in Science from Lewis and Clark Community College in 2015.

I worked for Schnuck Markets in Alton for nearly eight years in the Meat Department, and this is where I met my wife (she worked in the Deli). We married in 2018 and have two sons. 

I recently graduated from SIUE with my BA in English, and this will be my first year teaching at HHS. 


I teach English I and English II, and I am particularly looking forward to working with the incoming freshman class, as we will be learning the ropes of HHS together!

We will be reading great works together, and I am excited to introduce you to literary works that you will hopefully come to love. Additionally, I will prioritize individual Self-Selected Reading where students can choose the literature they want to read. 

I'm looking forward to this semester and becoming a part of the community at HHS!
