Ms. Payne

Welcome to World Geography AAC!  We are venturing forward into a brand new year and have many exciting journeys to travel!


This is my 5th year at Elkins and my 8th year teaching. I got my start teaching in private school until I made the switch a few years ago after returning to the Houston area.

I'm privileged to be the new World Geography Team Learning Lead and a Curriculum Writer for the district. I am also the sponsor of Students Standing Strong, which is a Christian club that focuses on developing leadership and stewardship skills.

Teaching at Elkins is like coming home. I graduated from Dulles High School and have lived in Ft. Bend most of my life. I am truly blessed to be working with so many great educators and students here at Elkins.


Go Knights!
