Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. S. Payne

This is my second year at Tippit.  I taught at Annie Purl Elementary for five years and before that I was a nurse in Humbel ISD.  I graduated from Texas State University with a Bachelor in Science in independent Studies.  I am certified in early childhood - 4th, ELAR 4 - 8th and Special Education K -12.  I grew up in Miami, FL and moved here to go to school.  I have 4 children and 4 dogs all of which are my life outside of teaching.  I love teaching.  Kids are amazing and I learn from them everyday.

I am in a couple of bands,  one is an acoustic duo and the other is a rock band. I have been singing for years and love it.  It's my side dream job! 

My main goal in teaching is to make sure my students feel safe so they can learn. I have a passion to help them grow and become their best selves.
