About Ms. Payenski
Hello I am Miss Payenski! This is my second year at Desert Edge High School. I teach Biology wih Mr. Crittle and AP Biology. I am also the Cross Country coach. I moved to Arizona last year from a small town in New Jersey where I grew up. 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.
