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.
