Parker is said to possess the unusual ability to help his students “fall in love with math in particular, and learning in general.” His goal is his students’ understanding and practical use of knowledge. In addition to his classroom expertise, Parker is the founder of the Sidney Stars Base Ball Club, and has organized the Vintage Base Ball games for the annual Montcalm Heritage Festival.
