Hello! My name is Mariah Payne and I have been teaching at Olin Elementary since 2016. I am currently the Title One Reading teacher as well as 3rd grade homeroom. Previous to teaching at Olin Elementary, I had taught PreKindergarten for 2 years. I grew up in Dyersville, Iowa and later attended the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls to earn my B.A. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education with a minor in Literacy. I have been happily married since 2017 and have one fur baby--Charlie Girl. Outside of school I enjoy watching movies, spending time with my family, and attending concerts.
