My name is Cortney Payne and I am one of the Physical Education teachers at Beach Elementary.  This is my third year working here with such astounding students and staff.  I received my Bachelor's Degree from Trinity International University in 2011.  My major is in Physical Education K-12 with a Health endorsement.  My hobbies are playing volleyball, running, and baking.  I have lived in the Lake County area all my life and currently reside in the Round Lake community.  It is such an honor and privilege to give back to the community which I live in.

 I am very passionate about teaching students the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.  I enjoy being an advocate and positive role model for my students.  When they see me engaging in activities with them, it gives them more motivation to do the same.  It is my intention for students to find fun and healthy activities they enjoy participating in during their Physical Education class, so that they can engage in these activities outside of school with their family and friends.

I enjoy my small group reading classes I teach on a daily basis.  Each moring and afternoon, I lead a small group reading intervention.  These interventions reinforce reading skills and strategies that students learn in the classroom.
