Joannie spent most of her career at Westlake and had a huge impact on the lives of many. A Westlake and Harvard-Westlake English and humanities teacher, Ms. Parker started at Westlake in 1979 and began the women’s studies program at Westlake and Harvard-Westlake. She retired from HW in 1998.
Congrats to our FIRST female Vice-President, Kamala Harris! What a great birthday gift in honor of Joannie and her life’s work!
