Ms. Paige Caldwell-Burkholder, M.Ed.




Hello! My name is Ms. Caldwell and it is a pleasure to be a part of the Friday Harbor community! In my free time I enjoy reading, practicing yoga, playing video games, and hanging out with my two best friends; my husband, Mark, and my dog, Olive.

I received my BA in History from University of California, Irvine (Zot, Zot!) and my MA in Education and Educational Technology from Concordia University, Irvine.


I have been teaching for nine years; all in the high school history classroom. I am originally from Southern California and have taught in San Bernardino, Palm Springs, and Los Angeles. I completed my student teaching at Pacific High School in San Bernardino during which I received my California Teaching Credential. I landed my official first teaching job at Rancho Mirage High School in Palm Springs Unified, where I taught World History, US History, and AP Human Geography. Inclusively, I worked at Loyola High School of Los Angeles; an all-boys Jesuit private school in downtown LA. While at Loyola, I taught AP World History and AP Government. I also sat in the Faculty Senate, advised Junior State of America, was head coach of the Speech & Debate team and coached shot put and discus. I am looking forward to my third year here at Friday Harbor High School! Here at FHHS I teach US History, APUS History, AP World History, Women's History and Pre-AP World History and Geography.
