Mrs. Linda Payne, Counselor gr. 10-12 last names L-Z

Hello Bobcats,


I am Mrs. Payne. I am so excited to continue to be at Sage Creek. This is my 5th year here and 3rd year on the Counseling team! As a Carlsbad native I enjoy working in the community I grew up in, and the school system my children are also a part of. I am excited to work with all of my students and families to help them be best prepared for high school and beyond. I am looking forward to an amazing 2018-19 school year.
