Welcome to Ms. Payne's Class! I am so thankful to be a part of Bear Creek Elementary. This will be my third year teaching Kindergarten and my first year at Bear Creek. I have also spent time as a Developmental Therapist at a local non-profit, Early Childhood Intervention. I received my Bachelors in Child Development/Child Life from Texas Woman's University. I also attended Hardin-Simmons University. Our class will be supporting Hardin-Simmons University as part of our schools "No Excuses University" program in which we promote college readiness. I am proud to represent the purple and gold with my sweet kinder students. We have a lot to look forward to and I am thrilled to be learning and growing with your students!
