    Welcome to the 7th Grade!

    Welcome to 7th grade and Currituck Middle School!  I'm Ms. Payne, and this is my 28th year of teaching.  I am a graduate of Currituck County High School (class of 1987), College of the Albemarle, and Elizabeth City State University. I spent the first ten years teaching fifth and sixth grade at Dr. W. T. Griggs Elementary School and have spent the last 17 years here at Currituck County Middle School.  This year I am teaching all seventh-grade English language arts classes. Daily and weekly assignments will be posted in Google Classroom.  If your child is absent or is missing work, please go there to find the work.  Feel free to print the assignments and to email me anytime you have any questions. 

    In my spare time,  I enjoy playing my flute and spending time at the church.
