All About Mrs. Paige
 My father was in the US Army for all of my educational life except  college. That being shared- I attended 8 different elementary schools around America and Germany. I went to 4 different Junior high schools and two high schools.  I graduated from Western Carolina University in 1976. My degrees are in Early childhood Education and reading.  After teaching in Cumberland County, Ponderosa Elementary , for 7 years I  moved to Germany where I taught for the next 14 years. While in Germany I obtained my Graduate degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lewis University in Heidelberg.  Many miles of traveling later, I met my husband one summer while home to visit my mother. We were married the next year at the Heidelberg Castle, a childhood dream come true. We  got married again, the same year, for our friends and family in NC. We live in Faison on a farm with 2 dogs, 2 cats and about a million goldfish. Let me know if you need any goldfish- we have plenty. In 2000 I became a National Board Certified Teacher. I have taught First, Second  and Third Grade but seem to have found that Third grade is where I need to be.  I love the fact that students this age understand how to make good choices and know how to joke. Laughter makes learning fun and easier to remember.  Please feel free to come and spend time in our class - we love being here. Parents and other visitors are always welcome.
