Social and Emotional Support

Paige Mundy MSW, LSSW

About Me:

Education and Work Experience: 

After High School, I attended VUJC and earned an Associates of Social Work and Associates of Psychology. I worked for several years at TRI-CAP, our local Community Action Agency. I worked as a Family Advocate for Head Start for 3 years, and then transferred to the Teen Wellness Program in 2011. This program brought me into both the Forest Park and Northeast Dubois Schools 4 days a week. I grew to love working with teens in the school setting and knew this was the right path for me. Unfortunately, in 2014 TRI-CAP lost the grant which provided funding for the Teen Wellness program. At that point, I decided to return to school to continue my education. I was blessed to be asked to continue working at Northeast Dubois while attending school. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with my Bachelors in Social Work with a minor in Psychology in 2015. I went on to complete my Masters Program and earned a MSW in 2016. Shortly after graduating I received my LSW and LSSW licensure. 


My husband, Chase and I got married in 2010. He has been such a huge supporter of my endless dreams and ideas! Together we have 4 kiddos. Mackenzie is a Freshman at USI studying Early Childhood Education, Lucy is in 6th grade, Stella is in 4th grade and our little guy, Henry is in Kindergarten. After working at NED for a few years, I knew this was the type of community where I wanted to raise my family. My kiddos all transferred to Northeast Dubois and we began the transition of becoming JEEPS! This past Spring we found a home in Celestine and we have enjoyed being a part of this community so much! It feels so good to be “home”! 

A Little More: 

I love getting to know my students in as many settings as possible. I currently achieve this by sponsoring the Student Council, FCA, Junior Class and Natural Helpers Programs. This gives me the opportunity to create relationships with your children in multiple ways while also sharing social emotional learning opportunities. I try to attend extracurricular activities as often as possible, because I feel the more support we can offer our students, the more trust we gain. 

When I am not at work I really enjoy time with my family, watching my kids in their many activities, being with friends, taking part in my bible study group, and a good cup of coffee with a movie on a lazy day.
