Mr. DJ Paradis, Social Studies

Quick History:

I am a proud graduate from the Cartersville school system (class of 1999).  


I attended and graduated from Lagrange College in the winter of 2003.  After college, I started working at Cartersville Middle School in December 2003.  I have taught seventh grade social studies since 2006.  I also coach the middle school cross country program and the high school boys' soccer team.  


I am married to Hailey Hobgood Paradis.  If that names seem familar to any graduate from Cartersville, it is because she is one of us.  I have an energetic 10 year son that loves to run, play basketball and swim.


I also coach middle school cross country and high school soccer at Cartersville.  I have coached cross country coach since 2005 and have been with the soccer program since 2004 years and the head coach since 2010.
