Mr. Payne

My name is Scott Payne and I will be teaching AP Calculus AB and Advanced Precalculus this school year at Wylie High School.  This year will be my 2nd year at Wylie High School and my 9th year overall as a teacher in the Great State of Texas! 

My wife and I have been married for 13 years and have two children.  Our son graduated from Wylie High School last year and my daughter will be a 5th grader in the district this year. 

Prior to teaching I was an aerospace engineer in the defense industry.  I have work for Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and GE Aviation.  Most of my experience in engineering was involving modeling & simulation of aerospace systems, flight performance, and gas turbine engine control.

My hope and desire is to inspire young minds to grow both in knowledge and thinking, yes, thinking, about mathematical and scientific concepts and problems.   I also want to bring real world context to the mathematics and science to illuminate the world around our students.

Lastly, the message your child will receive from me is the following:  HARD WORK WINS!  YOU GET OUT OF LIFE WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT!

Warm Regards,

Mr. Payne
