5th Grade Teacher
My name is Kimberly Paris and I am excited to be teaching a fifth grade class here at Saint Mary of the Knobs Catholic School.
I first began work in school when my oldest son was in second grade and my twin son and daughter began kindergarten. I went from lunch room monitor to instructional assistant and became the interpreter for a deaf teacher. Next, I directed an after school enrichment program, followed by several years of working with autistic children. I returned to school to finish my degree in Anthropology and earned my master’s degree in elementary education. Most of my life has been spent in a classroom.
I enjoy involving my students in various hands-on experiences using art, singing, signing, knitting, storytelling and community involvement to enhance our learning. We will be busy, creative and ever learning in the fifth grade throughout the school year.
