My name is Paige Rahman and I am the 5th Grade ELL Specialist and Newcomer ELL Teacher. This begins my 23rd year of teaching. I have taught Special Education for two years in Richmond, MO; 4th Grade for 7 years on the island of Saipan, and Sheltered ELL in grades 2-6 in Kansas City in the KC public school for a year; and at Della Lamb/KCIA for 13 years. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Central Missouri State University and achieved certification for grades 1-8 and 4-9 Social Studies. I completed K-12 English as a Second Language Certification through UMKC, MU, and UCM. Currently, I am working toward a Master’s Degree in Literacy from Park University which will lead to Reading Specialist certification next year. I enjoy spending time with my family: my husband, my 13 year old daughter, my 17 year old son, and our two year old crazy cat. We like to travel, go on walks, and watch movies together. I also enjoy coaching both kids’ robotics teams and being a Girl Scout leader.
