Instructional Coach

I am so blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of such a dynamic and talented group of educators, and such a wonderful community at CHE. My name is Paige Orcutt and I have been a teacher for ten years. I grew up in Morrison to a family of educators, and ran track for Boise State in Idaho, where I majored in Elementary Education. I have my Masters degree in Educational Leadership from American College of Education, and am finishing my administrator license through Jefferson County. I have one younger sister who I am very close with as well as an older step sister, but family is extremely important to me and I am constantly surrounded by all of them- this picture is from my annual family trip fishing and camping in Rhode Island. Although I don't have children of my own yet, I have a 125 pound 7 year old Newfoundland dog named Kiya who is spoiled like one. I recently got engaged, and my fiancé's name is Bery. We just purchased our first home, and will be getting married next Fall. I compete for Team USA in the triathlon as an amateur, but all of that comes behind my love for kids and the promise of a better future for all of us. I look forward to getting to know each of you and hope for the opportunity to learn your story as our paths cross to support our next generation's educational success! If you see me, please stop and say hello.
