Pink Elementary School

Paige Dawkins

I am proud to be a member of the Pink Elementary family and community. Amazing things are happening at Pink every day, and I am so blessed to be a part of it. For me this is not just a job; this is my passion and my heart!

Suprisingly, Education was not the career path that I initially intended to follow upon entering college, but I found myself drawn to volunteer at the local public schools. I found such joy in helping students feel successful and important during my time there, and I realized that I could continue to experience that same joy every day if I worked with students in a similar capacity. Embarking on this wonderful journey in the education field was and is the best decision I ever made; I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love. As Confucius said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." 

I received an undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Arlington and master’s degree in Educational Administration from A&M at Commerce.

In serving in the role as assistant principal, I have the wonderful opportunity to work alongside amazing educators, parents, and the Frisco community to support each child at Pink.
A Little About Me: I grew up a small-town girl from Atlanta, Texas (in the northeastern corner by Texarkana) and moved to the DFW area after graduating high school.  Since then I’ve lived in Arlington, Wylie, McKinney, and now Frisco.

This school year marks my 13th year in education, and I am so excited to see what adventures this year will bring! I am dedicated to the success and well-being of EACH Pink student.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me; my door is ALWAYS open. Together we can be the one that makes a difference for every child here at Pink!
