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 +/-/x/÷ fractions and mixed numbers, and multi-step word problems. 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 eleventh year teaching and my seventh 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 two daughters. My oldest, Joely, is 18, and she is currently attending Pfeiffer University. My youngest, Annalise, is 14, and she started her first year at Davidson Early College High School. 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 and be silly! 

I look forward to an exciting year with you and your child! Please contact me at any time with questions by calling the school at 336-242-1552, by emailing me at, or by sending me a message on Class Dojo.
