Ms. Paradis

Welcome to 5th Grade Math!

My name is Kristie Paradis and I will be teaching your child math this year. Fifth grade math is a continuation of fourth grade standards with a more in depth focus on fractions and decimals, along with other areas. My goal is to show students it IS possible to love math! My favorite moments are the “lightbulb” moments - when students have been struggling and finally get it!

This is my ninth year teaching and my fifth year at Charles England. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education through the University of Phoenix. I have taught several different grades, but 5th grade is by far my favorite!

I live in Lexington with my boyfriend and two daughters. My oldest is 16, and she will be a junior at Davidson Early College. My youngest is 12, and she will be in 7th grade at North Davidson Middle. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family. We love to watch movies, go thrift shopping, or just hang out! 

I look forward to an exciting year with you and your child! Please contact me at any time with questions by texting/calling me at 336-848-3165 or by emailing me at
