About the Teacher

Hello! My name is Jessica Payne and I teach 3rd Grade Reading, Writing, and Language Arts at Carrollton Elementary School. I have been a part of CES for three years and am excited to begin my fourth year here as a Trojan!

I graduated from the University of West Georgia with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2013. I am 26 years old and I have lived in Carrollton, Georgia my whole life. I have had a passion for influencing the lives of children since I was 13 years old. For the past 12 years, I have worked with children through many different avenues including babysitting, being a nanny, working in the PALS Afterschool Program, tutoring, being a Kindergarten paraprofessional, and also a third grade teacher. I could not feel anymore blessed than I do now being able to have the responsibility and duty to teach and impact children, and help lead them on the exciting and meaningful adventures we experience in elementary school.

In September of 2017, I will celebrate ONE year of marriage to my wonderful husband, Jacob. When I am not teaching, you may find me outdoors enjoying nature or inside painting, watching movies, and spending time with my family. I love the Lord, the beach, and anything Disney!

Help me as I set out on a journey to kindle eagerness and desire within our third graders to become lifelong learners!

Go Trojans!
