Mrs. Lori Payne


        I love being a BRAVE at Ingram Elementary School! In 1987, I received a bachelor's degree with double majors in Elementary Education and Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado. In 2015, I completed a master's program in Special Education at Lamar University.  As a Special Education Teacher, I work with the General Education Teachers to meet the needs of our students with specific learning challenges. My passion is to provide individualized and specialized instruction for students that struggle in reading, writing, and math….and then watch them GROW! I grew up in Colorado, was recruited to come teach in Texas, and have been an educator for over 30 years. My husband and I have two adult daughters, a son in law, and one adorable granddaughter.  Our family is made complete with our three dogs (a golden doodle and two long haired dachshunds).  I'm looking forward to a wonderful year!!
