Veloura Parker is a monitor at Nyack Middle School. She has been at with the district for 26. Ms. Parker has been in our Middle School for more than twenty years. There is no task too great, or too small that she will not undertake. Assuring students with alternative instruction have all they need to succeed, and in the next moment mounting inspirational posters in the hallways, then confirming test materials, supervising in the cafeteria, and the list goes on. Add to that, her deep personal connections to our Nyack Community, which are invaluable day-to-day in seeing to it that all students obtain attention and care, according to their needs. Mrs. Parker is a human whirlwind and supports NMS in myriad ways.
