Hi! My name is Haley “Paige” Gilbert and I am thrilled that I get the chance to work and learn with your children this year. All my life I wanted to be a teacher so this opportunity to be part of ASE means so much to me. I hope to share my love for learning and teaching with my class so all my students will be life-long learners. As a teacher’s child I truly understand the important responsibility that educators possess. I enjoy teaching because to me there is no greater feeling than when I see a “light bulb” come on for a child.
I grew up in Houston but I lived abroad for several years. While overseas I learned so much about other cultures and it is something that I will treasure forever. I was able to travel a lot while I was there, which is something that I really enjoy doing. I attended The University of Texas at Austin where I received a B.S. in Applied Learning and Development. This is my eighth year teaching. I am certified in Elementary Education grades EC-6, GT, and ESL. In my free time I love to run, bake, scrapbook, dance, spend time with family and friends, play with my two dogs, and cheer for the Longhorns. Hook’em! It is an honor to be able to work with your children and I cannot wait to get to know each of them. I am so excited for the year ahead!
