About Ms. Payenski

  • Hello I am Miss Payenski! This is my third year at Desert Edge High School. I teach Biology wih Mr. Fornay (Periods 1, 2 and 3) and AP Biology. I am also the Cross Country coach. I moved to Arizona from a small town in New Jersey. I graduated from Rutgers University in 2015 with a degree in Biology, minoring in Entomology and in 2016 with a Master's in life science education. While I was at Rutgers, I competed on the cross country and track teams for 5 years. I like running, hiking, and just being outdoors in general!

    Please reach out to me with any questions! Email is the best way to reach me.
