Mr. Kevin L. Payton

Upon graduating from Virginia State University, I have started my educational career as a Para-professional with students with special needs at Cleveland Heights High School were I attended. I later went back to school to get my teachers license in Special Education where I taught in East Cleveland for 5 years. After receiving my Masters Degree in Educational Administration I became a Principal to make an impact on more students other than the students in my classroom.
As an experienced administrator of 15 years and dedicated educator with a knowledge base in Educational “Best Practices”, I am eager to create a working partnership with our staff, parents and community partners. My goal is to help each student embrace the tools necessary towards transitioning into high school while simultaneously preparing for the 21stCentury
