Ms. Payne

Welcome to First Grade! My name is Amanda Payne and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! I am originally from Leesburg, VA and graduated from Penn State University with my Bachelor's of Science in Childhood and Early Adolescent Education in 2015. This is my 6th year teaching in Loudoun County, and have spent the majority of my time in First Grade with one year in Kindergarten as well. I'm thrilled to be back in First Grade this year, and am excited to continue my journey here at Countryside. In my free time, I love to workout and be active, read, cook, & spend time with my family, friends, and my dog, Leo! I love learning and will be beginning my Master's Degree for a Reading Endorsement with George Mason as well. I'm looking forward to making this a great year!

Please don't hesistate to reach out with any questions. You can find my email here. We will learn and grow a lot together this year!
