Degrees and Certifications:
Hi there! My name is Paige Truitt, and I am so excited to be joining CCA this year! I graduated from Clemson University in 2017 with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing. After working in the marketing field for a few years, I decided to make a career shift and purse my passion of working with children. I was most recently a Denver Math Fellow working with 4th grade students at Ashley Elementary School in Denver. I received my Colorado Teaching License this year along with a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education Endorsement. I am currently in the process of receiving my Maters Degree in Elementary Education from Relay Graduate School of Education.
In my free time I love to be outdoors as much as possible. You can usually find me in the mountains, on a challenging hike, or just enjoying nature! I love to be active - I am a yoga instructor and teach classes most weekends. Music is another big part of my life. I like to play the piano and fill up my social calendar with live music events. At home, my favorite thing to do is relax with a good book and curl up with my cat, Shady :)
My teaching philosophy is that a classroom should be a caring, supportive community where students feel safe to take risks and share their ideas. I work very hard to foster an environment where each child feels seen, valued, and heard. I recognize the unique perspectives, cultures, and experiences my students bring to our community and learn from them each day. I believe that teaching is a collaborative process of learning from students, parents, colleagues, and the community. I am a lifelong learner constantly seeking to improve my practice, and I aim to pass on the joy of lifelong learning to my students.
