Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am looking forward to my fifth year at West Central (Go Trojans!) My name is Ashley Payne and I am a Special Education teacher at West Central Middle School.
I grew up in Rapid City, South Dakota and am the youngest of 4 children. While I sometimes miss being home, my husband, Michael and I sure are loving the east side of the state.
I am a 2 time graduate of the University of South Dakota (Go Yotes!) In 2012 I graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I most recently graduated with my Masters of Arts degree in K-12 Special Education in 2015.
I firmly believe that West Central has the best teachers and I know that working alongside them has been both very fun and rewarding. With these people guiding your child's education it is sure to be a very successful year.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email, call, or stop by at anytime.
