About Ms. Paget

Hello Everyone!

This is my 16th year teaching, and my fifth year teaching third grade. I’m so excited for this new adventure at Freedom Crossing Academy.  The past 11 years I have been teaching at Durbin Creek Elementary, while there I taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and third grade.  Before Durbin Creek I taught kindergarten in Duval County for three years.

I was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa and am a Midwest girl at heart. My family moved to Jacksonville and I went to high school at Mandarin High School. After that I went to the University of Florida and graduated from the College of Education Proteach program.

I love being a teacher, it is my true passion. I enjoy working with kids and pushing beyond teaching just the “basics”. My goal is to meet the needs of children on an individual basis. I try to create these independent, strong, bright leaders by the end of the year. It is amazing to watch them progress and change throughout the year. As I have been teaching I have been working to further my certification. I am now endorsed to teach ESOL and Gifted students, I also have my Reading Endorsement.

I am looking forward to a wonderful year. If you ever have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me.
