My name is Mrs. Paradis and I am excited to be returning to Tolbert Elementary as an EL teacher this year. I am originally from Baltimore, MD but now live in Reston with my husband and three daughters. I taught First grade for several years before becoming an EL instructor. I strive to create a classroom community where each student feels excited to come to school every day. As a parent and teacher, I look forward to building a healthy working partnership with my students' families that will promote the success of each child in and out of the classroom.
When I am not in school, you will find me spending time with my family. Let's have a great year!
