Mrs. Zefferine Payne

Mrs. Payne is a first-year 4th grade teacher at Sauk Elementary. Her passion and love for learning and education was sparked by her awesome and nurturing teachers in the Chicago Public Schools. It is Mrs. Payne's hope to instill the same passion in her students. She received a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Northwestern University and a Master of Education in elementary education from DePaul University. She is married and the mother of four. When time permits, Mrs. Payne enjoys cooking, crocheting, solving puzzles (especially word, math and logic puzzles), and gathering with family and friends.
