Mrs. Payne

Library Media Specialist

Hello!  I am excited to begin my third year at Concrete Primary! Earlier in my career in education, I was a school librarian in West Columbia, SC, and I taught 2nd grade in Anderson One. 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 and daughter. This will be a special year for our family; both of my children will attend Concrete with me! We enjoy boating, traveling, attending music concerts, and watching Carolina football. We have one spoiled Highland Maltie pup named Connor.
