• Welcome to Cecil H. Parker Elementary School 1st Grade! My name is Saroya Brown.  I received my teaching credentials from the College of New Rochelle. My hobbies include traveling, reading and cooking. My passion is teaching, inspiring and challenging children to love learning.  It is a great feeling to watch our children grow and learn throughout the year. The strides that are made in first grade are truly amazing and I'm extremely happy to be able to witness it. I look forward to a great year teaching your children.
