Mr. Michael Parrish
Mr. Parrish is the CTE Business teacher here at Choice Plus Academy. I prefer to go by Coach Parrish, however Mr. Parrish is fine. I am the proud father of 3 AMAZING children who also attend Johnston County Schools. My youngest daughter Mikylie Love is 11, my son Grayson is 13 and my oldest daughter LeeAnne "Maggie" is soon to be 15. Coach Parrish is also an assistant football coach for the North Johnston High School Panthers football team.
With a backgroud in business and a Master's of Business Administration, I am eager to teach, mentor and help our students here at Choice Plus become excellent students and productive citizens as well as in building a foundation for their futures. Coach Parrish is a proud NJHS Panther alumni and an ex college football player for Catawba College as well as a NC Wesleyan graduate. GO BISHOPS!
Coach Parrish uses Canvas as his teaching platform and is excited to both teach and learn virtually from all of his students.
