Hello! My name is Paige Gwyin and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten! I grew up on the south side of Des Moines and graduated from Lincoln High School! I was lucky enough to be the building sub for Howe while I was finishing my degree and I am so excited to be back! I graduated from Upper Iowa University with my bachelors in Elementary Education and endorsements in reading and language arts. I have been with DMPS for five years in two roles, one as an associate and then moved into a substitute teaching position. This will be my sixth year with DMPS but now as a Kindergarten teacher. I teach dance and tumbling at DMi dance force on the south side of Des Moines as well. When I am not at work I love to travel, go shopping and be with my family. I can’t wait for a great year!
- I graduated from Luther College with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in reading.
- This will be my second year with DMPS! I student taught at Howe Elementary in 3rd grade and Kindergarten. After I graduated, I worked at Riverwoods Elementary for one year as a Title Interventionist. I am so happy to be back at Howe teaching Kindergarten!
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends in my free time. I also like reading, running, traveling, and sewing projects!
