After graduating from Tulane University, Paisley first taught English to adults in Asia and was then accepted into the NYC Teaching Fellows, a demanding, competitive program to develop top-notch candidates. Through the program, she received a Masters Degree in Education, and NY State teaching certification in grades PreK through 6th. Her experience includes multiple years of teaching PreK, Kindergarten, 2nd, and 5th grades, as well as English as a New Language, in private, public and charter elementary and high schools. Most recently she taught at an independent, bilingual, French-American school in Manhattan. As a teacher for 24 years, Paisley has learned to educate the whole child: mind, body, and spirit; respect and attune to each child’s developmental needs and learning style; respect each child’s autonomy, individuality, personal history, and cultural background; focus on communication and interpersonal cooperation between myself, students, and parents; tap into and call forth each child’s inherent creative and artistic potential; build critical thinking and analytical skills: and, nurture healthy relationships and self-image. She creates atmospheres that foster curiosity and encourage intellectual risk, as well as environments that combine deep thinking with social-emotional growth. The best way for children to learn is to provide an education that delights as much as it demands. Paisley has lived in Northern China, South Korea, Sweden, and India, as well as Myanmar/Burma and Kashmir. She is also a certified Master Composter for the City of New York.

Paisley competed with the Gotham Girls, 5-time winners of the Roller Derby World Cup. Teammates included a Google exec, a district attorney and 2 astrophysicists.
