I am Paula Schaefer, a second grade teacher at Davis Elementary.  I grew up in the Tillman's Corner area, attended Griggs Elementary, and graduated from Theodore High School.  I am married to a wonderful man, Richard Schaefer.  I come from a family of teachers and musicians, so we have fun in class!  My favorite activities are reading, music, and an occasional pedicure!  I think second-graders are awesome, even after 30+ years!
