Meet the Teacher

I'm Paige. I am 25 years old and I live in Illinois. I am originally from the Chicagoland area but am currently hanging out down in the central part because that is where I was offered a job doing what I love - teaching! This 2016-2017 school year is my fourth year teaching - all in the wonderful land of first grade!

I graduated in 2013 from the University of Illinois (Go Illini!) I don't think I would be the teacher I am today without my amazing cohort of education majors.

I'm not married (yet) and I don't have any kids of my own. For now, my first graders are enough to keep me plenty busy and give me enough loving. I do come home to two fur babies, Whiskers McMittens and Jingles McFluffington.

As of December 2015, I am engaged to the love of my life. His name is Adam and he is my best friend in the entire world.
