While on active duty, he earned a Master of Business Administration from Florida Tech. Parker was medically retired in October 1994, and began substitute teaching as he was trying to figure out what to do with his life. It was while substituting that he realized teaching was his passion. This became the beginning of his long journey in education, roots to treetops.
