Mrs. Payne

Library Media Specialist

Hello! I am excited to begin my fourth year at Concrete Primary! I have been an educator for 15 years; 11 of which have been spent as a school librarian. My husband, Nathan, and I are originally from the Belton area. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education from Lander University, and I earned a Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of South Carolina. Go Gamecocks!

My husband and I have a son in 3rd grade and a daughter in 1st grade at Concrete. We enjoy boating, traveling, attending music concerts, and watching Carolina football. We have a spoiled Highland Maltie pup named Connor.
