Meet the Teacher
My name is Candi Paine. I grew up in the Pine Strawberry area then went to the University of Arizona for my teaching degree. I started teaching at Pine Strawberry School in 1996. I took a break from teaching from 2000-2008 to have children of my own. I have 4 kids. Two of my kids attend Payson High School and two have already graduated. My oldest is attending the University of Arizona working on his bachelors in physiology. My second is pursuing a career in floral arranging. My husband is a captain paramedic at the Pine Strawberry Fire Department and chief at the Blue Ridge Fire Department. When we aren't at work we enjoy getting out in nature. We especially like visiting National Parks.
