Mrs. Tonya (Grasha) Page
Hello all, I am so excited to be back at CCI for my third year in a row. I am taking on an exciting new adventure this year working as the Dyslexia Interventionist. I have been in the education field for nearly two decades, the majority of my career I have spent teaching reading and writing. I am passionate about helping students to overcome their obstacles and walking with them as they discover true love for reading. When you walk into my classroom you will notice a language-rich environment that is both warm and welcoming, two essential elements of learning.
A little about me. My former students know me as Ms. Grasha; however, at the end of 2020, I married my best friend Junior, I am now proudly Mrs. Page. I have two beautiful and talented daughters. My oldest is currently attending University to be a teacher, my youngest is pursuing her dreams of being a stylist while also being a full-time Mommy to my adorable grandson. Working out, hiking, and exploring are a few of my favorite past times, I love anything outdoors. When I am not outside you can find me curled up with a good book.
When it comes to teaching, I believe in developing strong relationships that tap into students' passions and provide relevancy to students allowing them to make connections to the curriculum. I believe all students deserve a champion, I champion what is best for students in all decisions and model lifelong learning in my professional and personal life.
