Paige Edwards

After growing up in the Dallas area, I received my bachelors in Early Childhood Education from Texas Tech University in Lubbock in 1998, and a graduate degree in Library Science at the University of North Texas in 2000.  I am so happy to be entering into my 24th year as the librarian at Barksdale Elementary.  I am so thrilled to work with your students to provide a collection of varied literature, as well as teach literacy and research skills.  The library also serves as an opportunity for creative expression and critical thinking through our Makerspace activity experiences.  I also encourage students in their reading through Book Clubs and incentives like the Bluebonnet Award and One School/One Book programs.  My goal is to assist students in their love of learning and reading. 

My husband, Michael, and I have been married for 20 years, and enjoy travelling.  Our daughter, Emma, will begin 9th grade at Shepton High School.  We have fun at home with our dog, Princess.  I love this community of staff, students, and families and look forward to a wonderful year!
