Briegel Payne

Primary 2&3 Teacher
I am currently completing my Doctorate at the University of Louisville in Education, I have a Master in Education at Indiana University and Bachelor in Public Policy and Elementary Education from Washington and Lee University. I have applied, and honed distinct philosophies and approaches learned in the classroom to develop a unique personal philosophy of teaching. Holding an undergraduate degree in Politics, in addition to my Education Degree, has given me a unique perspective of how society, culture, national institutions, and education all must interplay to develop children of character. Ultimately, I try to bring this viewpoint into the classroom, and develop curious students who can succeed as global citizens. I believe that all students have an innate desire to learn, a curiosity that yearns to be fed, yet every student learns most effectively in a unique way. I like to structure my classrooms to address this need for differentiated and whole-child learning.

Outside the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, coaching cross-country and track, and teaching Pure Barre. My family enjoys going to the park, having game night, doing projects together, and watching sports.
