Ms. Paige C. Harris
Hello! My name is Paige Harris. I graduated in May 2014 with my Bachelor of Science from Longwood University. GO Lancers!! I am a licensed teacher in grades PreK through 6th grade. I recieved my Master of Education in Reading, Literacy and Learning the following year. While getting my Master's, I worked in Chesterfield County as a Reading Tutor. I worked closely with the Reading Specialist, PALs tutors, classroom teachers, and other Title I teachers. This lead me to my new adventure at Riverheads Elementary.
When I am not busy with school and work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.I love to be outside, but also enjoy spending time in the kitchen. My new hobby is kayaking! I grew up in Augusta County and graduated from Fort Defiance. During high school,I had the oppurtunity to spend some time at Riverheads Elementary in Mrs. Cox's room. My family and parents all went to Riverheads so the Gladiator community is no stranger to me.
The Valley is home, but my teaching experiences in other counties of Virginia have opened my eyes to the idea of teaching in other areas. I have always dreamed of becoming a teacher. With that comes the desire to see each student grow and succeed. I want to give every child the opportunity to feel confident and successful when they walk out of my classroom. Which brings me here to my dream school! I look forward to a great second year with this AMAZING group of kids. We are off to a great start!
