Mrs. Payne

Sixth Grade

Writing, Reading and Social Studies

This is my 13th year teaching for Allen ISD. I’ve had the opportunity to teach 4th grade reading, writing, social studies and science for the past seven years at Lindsey. I previously taught Texas history, reading and writing for four years at Chandler Elementary before moving to Lindsey.
I have gained a wealth of knowledge and have met great people. I love teaching at Lindsey!
I'm excited to meet wonderful students, and to work with supportive p
arents to make this the best year possible! 

I live in Grapevine, so I have learned to enjoy my car rides. :) 
My husband, Todd, is a mobile DJ for weddings, birthday parties,
and corporate events. We have two children, my step-daughters,
Rianna who is starting college this year and Kyla who is in 10th grade.
Currently, I am attempting to play the guitar, but mostly I read
in my spare time. We have three dogs and a cat that run our house.
Mack and Khaleesi are our Siberian Huskies, and Lucy is a
German Pointer. They are my fur babies.
