Mrs. Melanie Paige

I have lived in Cartersville my entire life.  I actually grew up just right down the street from Cartersville Primary School!  I am married to Ken Paige who serves as the Director of Construction for Cartersville School System.  We are the proud parents of two Cartersville Purple Hurricanes...Tanner and Carsyn, both graduates of Cartersville High School and Kennesaw State University.  My daughter and her husband, Grayson, are expecting a baby this fall.  I am going to be a first-time "Mellie."  


When I am not at school, you can find me working out at The Rock Fitness Center located just down the road from CPS every afternoon, and on Sundays I love being at Crosspoint City Church.  I also enjoy hiking, biking, and walking our local trails.


Prior to teaching, I worked in the banking industry for ten years.  My first degree was in Business Administration.  After having my own children, I decided to go back to school to become a teacher.  After earning my education degree, I taught third grade for ten years at Cartersville Elementary School.  After my very first class graduated from high school, I thought it may be time for a change.  I requested a transfer and came to Cartersville Primary School.  I was honored to be named Cartersville Primary School's "Teacher of the Year" for 2014.  This is my 12th year teaching 2nd grade.  I LOVE TEACHING 2nd GRADERS!!
