Mrs. Paradis

Hello everyone!  Welcome to my web page!  My name is Keri Paradis-Fengler, although everyone just calls me Mrs. Paradis (it's much easier!).  I have been an elementary school teacher since 1994, and I have been in Stratford for the last 7 years.  After I graduated from a small college in New York, I joined the United States Peace Corps and went to the Kingdom of Lesotho from 1994-1996, where I worked with teachers in small mountain villages.  (No, there were no lions or elephants where I lived...but I did go and visit where they did live!)  After I returned home to the United States, I taught 4th grade in New York City.  Then I moved to Arizona, where I always wanted to live and I taught 2nd grade on the White Mountain Apache Reservation.  I finally decided it was time to move back home to Connecticut to be near my family.  Since returning to Connecticut, I have taught Kindergarten, First and Second grades.  I met my husband and got married in 2007.  We have two children (Sophia and Nicholas) that I like to talk about often! We have a cat and we live near a pond in Shelton.  That means we get to see many kinds of pond life including turtles, herons, egrets, wood ducks and much more!  We've even had an American Snapping Turtle lay her eggs in our garden.  It was great to see them hatch!  When I am not teaching, I love to read, scrapbook, bake or relax with my family and friends.  Thanks for visiting my page!
