My name is Paige Orcutt. I have been in education for 12 years. I have taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade. This is my second year serving as the Instructional Coach for Columbine Hills Elementary, and I feel very fortunate to be part of such a great community. I grew up in Morrison, Colorado and am getting married September 24th on my family farm. I enjoy playing with my Newfoundland, Kiya. I also enjoy training for triathlons, and scrapbooking. I teach ballet at a nearby dance studio, and love anything to do kids. I am looking forward to a great year!
