About Mr. Payne
Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor's in Mathematics - A&M Commerce Master's in Mathematics - A&M Commerce
Hello! My name is Brad Payne. I teach the Dual Credit Math classes at Sunnyvale High School, and also serve as the department chair. I went to college at Texas A&M University at Commerce where I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Mathematics. I started teaching in 1997, and taught at Poteet High School for eleven years, before coming to Sunnyvale for the 2008-2009 school year.
I have always loved Math, but I love teaching it even more. Any chance I get to help someone understand it a little better, or to overcome any problems they have, is what makes this career worthwhile. The real bonus for me is getting to know my students and what their interests are, sharing stories, and making them smile. My other passion is food and cooking. I'm always interested in new recipes and new restaurants, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to send them my way.
