Mr. Donald Payne

I am a proud graduate of Roosevelt HS class of 2011. After high school, I went on to graduate from Texas A&M San Antonio with a degree in History. I love reading and learning about historical events.  This is my fifth year here at Jackson Middle School. I come from a family of educators. My mother is an elementary school principal and my sister is a high school assistant principal. I guess you can say that it runs in the family. In my spare time, I enjoy playing basketball and being with my family. I am a big Spurs and Aggie Fan. I enjoy making history relateable and enjoyable for my students.
