Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Sandyia Payton and I'm happy to be here at Garcia Middle School. I'm a proud graduate of Sam Houston State University.
I have been teaching Journalism for 18 years. I taught for 12 years at the high school I attended in Humble, TX.
In 2021, I was selected as the MGMS Teacher of the year. I was also selected as a district teacher of the year finalist.
I believe that every student has a story to tell. As student journalists, I want my student press members to look for those stories and tell them to the best of their ability.
I'm looking forward to a great year as a gator!
