Meet Mrs. Payne



I would like to tell you a little about myself. I am married and have three fantastic grown children. The oldest is married and they have given us 4 grand dogs. I grew up in Wichita, Kansas, but Texas has been my home for twenty-nine years now.


I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a minor in French from Harding University in 1987. I will be married for 32 years in December to my wonderful husband, John.


This will be my eighteenth year in formal education. I have taught five years in third grade, one year with dual duties in first grade reading and PK-eighth grade physical education, six years of pre-school, substituted for five years, one semester of second grade, and eleven years in fourth grade. I am excited to be teaching reading and writing to 4th graders this year!


Thank you for sharing your fourth grade student with me this year. I am looking forward to getting to know them and seeing them soar in knowledge and personal growth.
