Dr. Paige Cole

Hello! My name is Paige Cole and I have taught high school social studies for about twenty years. I am grateful for a purposeful life filled with young people who continue to inspire and challenge me.  I currently teach AP US Government and Politics and AP Psychology.  I co-sponsor the Beta Club, which has partnerships with local non-profits and organizations ranging from ESP to the Athens Land Trust.  I also sponsor the Civics Club, which hosts and participates in Youth Assembly at the Georgia State Capitol every year.  In 2011 my husband and I were the recipients of Fulbright-Hayes fellowships to Tanzania.   I believe in lifelong learning and finished a PhD in 2014 at UGA.  I am an avid runner and love all things outdoors including gardening, paddling, and hanging out with my dogs.
