Madison Pavey

1st Grade Crew Teacher

Meet Ms. Madison!
Of course my main passion is teaching. I really do love what I do and I am so excited for this to be my first year! Some my interests and hobbies include traveling, hiking, being with friends, reading and trying new restaurants.  I absolutely love to travel any time I can. Last summer I studied abroad in Rome and I can not wait to go back to Europe. While living in Boulder I started to really enjoy hiking (how can you not in Colorado!?). One of my favorites is the Chautauqua Trail in Boulder. Spending time with friends is also one of my top interests. I have a very close group of friends that I met freshman year of college and we love to spend time together whenever we can! I spend a lot of my free time reading. I love mysteries and memoirs the most!
I was born and raised in Colorado. I attended Douglas County Schools so I am returning to my roots! During my growing up years I lived in Highlands Ranch with my parents and two brothers. I really loved to sing so I was in the Colorado Children’s Chorale. I spent 6 years in this Chorale and was even able to travel to Europe for a tour! When I entered high school I really wanted to be apart of a team so I tried out lacrosse. Even though I was never really good at it I loved being apart of a team and meeting new people. 
I am very close with my family. I have two older brothers, Curtis and Andrew. Curtis now lives in Cincinnati and is pursuing a doctorate in piano performance. Andrew lives in Boulder and is an electrical computer engineer. I like to think that I have the best parents ever. My mom and I are very close, I usually end up calling her 5+ times everyday. My dad followed in the footsteps of my grandfather, becoming an airline pilot. He is about to retire after 36 years of flying with the major airlines. I always thought my dad had one of the coolest jobs ever (besides being a teacher, of course!) 
My education started in DCSD and continued at the University of Colorado Boulder. Boulder has been my home for the past 4 years and one of my very favorite places to be. I chose CU so I could be close to home and have the most beautiful backyard view of the flatirons (sko buffs!). I started out with a degree in psychology, as I was always very interested in the brain and how it works. My sophomore year I applied for the Elementary Education Licensure Program because I always had an interest in teaching. During the program I was placed in various classrooms to complete practicums. Once I started teaching lessons and working with students it really solidified my desire to be a teacher. My senior year I was placed in a Kindergarten classroom for student teaching. I absolutely loved being in this class. I learned so much from my mentor teacher (who had great experience) and after that I knew I wanted to teach the primary grades. 
The main reason I chose REMS is because of the crew! When I first met everyone (in my interview) I felt very comfortable and valued. Each member that I talked with was so friendly which is exactly what I was looking for. After learning more about the school I knew it was going to be a great fit. The values that REMS hold really align with my values as a teacher. I am looking forward to a year of outdoor adventures and hands-on learning!
My favorite outdoor adventures are hiking and swimming. As I mentioned before, I really do love to hike. It is so relaxing and a great way to get outside and enjoy nature. I also love to go swimming. While I lived in Boulder, I would usually go to the Boulder Reservoir or the creek and swim on days it was hot out. My friends and I would love to go to the reservoir and rent paddle boards! 
I can not wait to meet my 1st grade students and get the year started here at REMS!
