Welcome! From Dr. Gillespie...

I am Dr. Paige Gillespie, the Principal at Fairfield East! I have been in Fairfield for almost 30 years. I did my student teaching at Fairfield South Elementary, and then taught 4th and 5th grade at Fairfield Central until 1998. At that time, I became the Assistant Principal. In 2010, I moved to Fairfield East as the Principal, and have been here ever since. 
 
I enjoy what I do for many reasons, but mostly, it is being with the children! Parents and community are fun, but the kids are even more fun! It sounds like a cliche', but making a difference no matter how small is the motivation that starts each day!
 
Fairfield East is located in Fairfield Township. We are one of two elementaries in the Township. We serve a diverse population of students in grades PK through 5th. Our demographics include 36% of our students are Economically Disadvantaged, 66% White, 10% Black, 7% Multi-Racial, 7% Asian and 1% Hispanic. We work closely with our community, and are always looking for new partners.
