Paige Jester is a physics teacher at PHS.
Are you married, have kids, or have any pets?
- “I am married and have two rescue dogs.”
What made you want to teach?
- “AP Physics was my favorite class in High School because it changed how I saw the world and showed me that I was much more capable of overcoming challenges than I thought. I started teaching because I wanted to give students the same experience that I had and to help them see that they are capable of overcoming the most challenging obstacles (including Physics problems!). And, at the same time, I get to share my love of Physics and hopefully get some more students interested in STEM!”
If you could pass on any wisdom to your students, what would you share?
- “My advice is to take care of yourself! If you are stressed and have a million things to do, give yourself at least 5 minutes to step away and do something that brings you joy. It will make a world of difference.”
