Mr. Payne

I am Mr. Payne, the 7th grade math EC teacher! I am a native New Yorker that now calls North Carolina home. This is my 2nd year at CCGMS and my 10th year as a teacher in NC. I have 3 children.  My son plays football and runs track at Lenoir-Rhyne University and my youngest daughter is in 1st grade. I am truly excited to be at CC Griffin and looking forward to working with the students and their families!
