MONROE - Todd Paradis accepted the Monroe school district's offer Tuesday to become the next principal at Parkside Elementary School, according to Monroe Superintendent Larry Brown.

The school board unanimously voted to offer the DeForest school district elementary school teacher a two-year contract Monday following a final closed session interview.

Paradis was also interviewed Aug. 3 by an advisory group, comprised of Parkside staff and parents and Amy Timmerman, Northside Elementary School principal; and a group of administrative staff in separate interviews.

Paradis, who has been at the DeForest district for five years, was among six candidates the board considered after taking in about 40 applications in late June after the district received a letter of resignation from former Parkside principal Eric Huinker, Brown said.

Huinker is no longer an employee of the district.

Beth Ableman-Bernet was the acting principal at Parkside since the first week in June, and will return to her role as dean of students/lead teacher for Monroe's virtual school.
