Mrs. Payton Waters

Hello everyone! I am so excited about working with your children this year at GCES! I am looking forward to a fantastic year of new beginnings, new goals being met, and lots of fun! I have worked in Special Education for 5 years, in various settings, with my most recent experience being at Webb Elementary. I am thankful that I have the opportunity to join such an amazing school this year! 

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Jake, for six years and we have two precious kiddos, Maisyn Kate and Bowden. We live in Hartford, across the road from where my husband grew up on the family farm. We enjoy all things outdoors and all things sports. During football season, you will find me cheering on the Florida State Seminoles and cheering on the Alabama Crimson Tide! We attend Shiloh Baptist Church, and are involved in our children's ministry and choir. 

I am a true teachers kid, and could not thank my mom enough for instilling in me a love for children! 

Here is to an amazing year here at GCES!
