    My name is Heather Payton. My undergraduate degree is in Middle Grades Education, where I attended Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina. I am also a recent graduate of Ball State University where I earned a Master’s degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis. I started my teaching career in 2011 in Winston-Salem, NC. In North Carolina, I taught 6th and 7th grade social studies. Since being in Indiana, I have taught 7th grade English, 7th and 8th grade social studies, and currently I am teaching 8th grade English.

    I feel strongly that children get the best education when teachers, parents, and children work together to accomplish a goal. I will try my best to accommodate each child's learning needs, as I believe that each child needs an equal opportunity to learn and grow. I believe that communication is also a key to your child's success. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.

    On a personal note, I have been married to my husband since 1994 and we have three children. I enjoy painting and crafting in my spare time.
