A little about me ...

I began teaching at Patton Junior High School in August of 1983 after completing my BSE Degree from the University of Kansas. In addition, I also hold a Masters Degree from Emporia State University. During the 2017 - 2018 school year I will be teaching English 7 and Drama for 8th and 9th graders. I enjoy education because it’s a constantly changing field. I’ve traveled from chalkboards, overheads, and typewriters to SMART Boards, computers of various shapes and sizes, and iPads. It’s been a whirlwind at times, but it’s also been a great adventure!  FortunateIy, I love to learn.  I'm a firm believer that a day isn't complete until a person has learned at least one new piece of information.  My favorite part of teaching is seeing that "aha moment" when a student "gets it".  If you would like to contact me, my e-mail address is pparadies@usd207.org.
