In no particluar order: WIFE, MOTHER, SISTER, DAUGHTER, FRIEND, EDUCATOR, ATHLETE, BELIEVER.
I have been in the field of education for 12 years. I graduted from Duke University with a B.A. in Biology and Elementary Education (with an unofficial degree in Women’s Basketball as a proud member of the Duke Blue Devils from 1995-1999.)  I received my M.Ed. from North Carolina Central University in Elementary Education, with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and served as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for Triangle Day School, a K-8 school located in Durham, NC.  Currently, I am the Assistant Head of Lower School at Ravenscroft School in Raleigh, NC.  I have  been married to my wonderful husband Alfie for 3 years, and we have a beautiful daughter named Simone who is 1.  I love my family and my job, and I am constantly trying to find balance so I can give both passions as much as possible- without sacrificing too much of myself.

Welcome to Hobbs’ Highlights!

The purpose of this blog is to showcase some of the amazing things happening in Ravenscroft’s Lower School, and also to share thoughts and ideas about education in general.

Our hope is that this will serve as an honest, transparent form of communication, and connect our Lower School with the entire Ravenscroft community.

Please feel free to suggest topics to be highlighted and share any information or links you would like to see included.

Sincerely,

Payton Hobbs

Head of Lower School
