Prior Experience: Paige has been working with our island team since 2012 and since that time has gained experience at all four of our island education centers. Her introduction to education began with a seasonal educator position at Fox Island and she most recently served as Manager of the Karen Noonan Environmental Education Program. In between, she enjoyed working at Smith Island and Port Isobel where she facilitated lessons on history, culture, and issues of the local bay fishing communities of Tangier, Virginia and Tylerton, Maryland. During her island time, her biggest priorities have been providing meaningful watershed experiences for students, student leaders, and teachers that are not only safe but also rich and relevant to her audience.
