Hello and welcome to our classroom page! My name is Paige Thornton and this is my fourth year at Washington Elementary, but my first year in second grade! I began my teaching career in second grade and am thankful for the opportunity to be back in such a fun grade level. I was born and raised in Carterville where I grew up as a lion, but am so thankful to spend my adult life and career as a Marion Wildcat! I love teaching children and cannot imagine doing anything else.
I am married to my best friend, Brad, and together we live here in Marion with our spoiled rotten puppy, Ruby. We are so blessed to be expecting our first child, a baby girl, in January 2022. We cannot begin to imagine all of the joy she will bring to us in the new year.
If you need to contact me, please do not hesitate to reach out. ClassDojo is a great form of communication, or feel free to email me at email@example.com.
