Welcoming Back: Paige Seibert


After a surprising absence of teachers at the high school by the end of last year, we welcome many new faces to the school including returning special ed teacher Paige Seibert, who was previously in Ames 2013-2019 before leaving for Shakopee high school. 

Originally teaching at Sawyer elementary after moving up to the High School in 2015, Ms. Seibert then moved to Shakopee High school, a school of 2,500 in Minnesota. 

Now entering her 9th year of teaching, Ms. Seibert, as a SE teacher, will be teaching a literacy lab where students are working on their reading and writing skills. After being asked about her inspiration, she said,

“I wanted to work with young people each and every day, and I wanted to be able to have an impact on their lives. I also wanted to feel I was making a difference in this world.”

Ms. Seibert’s explained that her favorite part of teaching is,

“Building relationships and connections with the students; seeing students have their “a-ha” moments when something finally clicks.”

Ms. Seibert has an athletic background having played softball with Luther College and qualified/placed at Nationals for 3 years in a row.

In her free time, she spends time with her husband Jake and kids Landrie, Kandrik, and Laiklyn. When she’s not doing crafts, she and her family spend lots of time outside whether it’s at parks or going for walks. 

While Ames High continues to adjust to recent changes we can look forward to the re-addition of Ms. Seibert into the school’s staff.
