McDonald Elementary | 2nd Grade
My name is Becky Payne. I was born and raised in North Platte. I graduated from North Platte High School. I received my Associates Degree from Mid-Plains Community College and my Bachelors Degree from the University of NE - Kearney. I am currently working on a K-3 Math Specialist Certificate through the University of NE - Lincoln.
I am the proud mom of a daughter, Kaylee. She is a junior at the University of NE - Omaha majoring in microbiology, with a double minor in anthropology and virology (viruses - I had to ask). I have two four-legged kids (cats) at home, EllieMae and PaePae.
This is my 10th year of teaching, five years at Lake Maloney School and five here at McDonald Elementary. I have had the privilege of working with so many great kids. Children come to us with a variety of gifts and talents. As a teacher, I get to help them explore, develop, and strengthen those at his or her own pace. Every child can learn and succeed, it just may not look the same for all.
