Ms. Payne


Welcome to 5th grade at Prairie Crossing! My name is Tonya Payne.  I am excited to be your child's teacher this year.  The fifth grade team has been busy planning an eventful year.   

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a previous degree in Vascular Sonography.   I am thrilled to be returning to PCE as a fifth grade teacher!

I have two sons who attend Douglas County Schools.  My oldest son is in high school.  My youngest son is in middle school.  I also have two adorable dogs, Annie and Finn.  

I love spending time with my family and working on our house.  

This is such an exciting time in your child's life and I am honored and privileged to be a part of it. Our year will be filled with lots of learning and fun .  I am looking forward to a wonderful year with your family.
