A psychologist retiring after 29 years at Wapakoneta City Schools spent her first seven years in education teaching.
While she spent much of her time working in the district’s elementary schools, Roberta Parker also evaluated children with multiple disabilities and worked with children attending programs outside of the district and filled in as needed at other buildings. Her assignments changed frequently as needed.
In addition to her role as psychologist, Parker also served as special education officer for the district, making decisions on special education matters as they arose.
School administrators are to take over that role this school year. A new psychologist was hired to take over Parker’s duties in that position.
Prior to coming to Wapakoneta, Parker spent time teaching elementary school in the Wood County area.
