Mrs. Payne

I am going into my 12th year of teaching.  I have a degree in Elementary Education with middle school math and science endorsements from Eastern Illinois University. I also have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. 


My husband and I have two beautiful girls, Lily is 7 years old and Kaylee is 4 years old. 


Even though the girls keep us busy, I do have a few hobbies.  I play in a softball league during the summer and fall and I love to read books on my iPad.  The girls and I enjoy shopping at the Algonquin Commons and sitting at Starbucks.  She gets her chocolate cake pop and I drink my coffee.
