Mrs. Shelly Creech-Parrish

   Hello one and all! My name is Shelly Creech-Parrish ~ Please call me Mrs. Creech. (It's just easier) This is my first year teaching as a licensed educator. However, I have been an educator since I was 17 years old. My life long career started as a before/after school childcare provider over the summer of my junior year of highschool. Through many years of education, lots of work places, and life experiences I am finally here a proud member of the CHES family!

   

My highschool dream was to be an art teacher but I never pursued that dream. After earning my Associates degree in Commercial Art and Advertising Design from Johnston Community College I met and married my husband of 21 years Greg Parrish. Who is also a JCPS teacher at Clayton High School. We had three children in five years and boy has time flown by! Rachel(21), Larson(19), and Colton(17) were my world. My life goals went to the back burner and mom life took over. I owned and operated Little People's Learning Center In-Home Child Care for 14 years, while raising our children. During this time I obtained my Associates in Early Childhood Education. I volunteered in many leadership roles with the Corinth-Holders Community Recreation League during those years as well. Heading up and planning many youth activities for Union Chapel OFWB Church in Middlesex took up the remainer of my time.

 

Finally life brought me to a place where I decided to pursue my goal of completing my Bachelors Degree. With this degree I intended to work as a Kindergarten teacher. Here's where God said warch this... I applied for several Kindergarten positions in Johnston County. However, I was not hired for any of them. So I decided to become a substitute teacher. (Get your foot in the door right?) I substituted a total of 2 days at Riverdell Elementary before I got a call from Mr. McLamb on 10/16/20 to become the long term substitute teacher for none other than the Art classroom starting 10/19/20. I was elated!!! God's plan is still in motion... On 12/14/20 I was hired as the official Art teacher for CHES!!! A dream from so many years ago that had been placed way out of thought has become a reality for me!

 

I look forward to Artfully serving the children and families of CHES!
