Coach Anthony Payton
I am excited to begin working with your children at West Johnston High School. I have a passion for education and sports. I am originally from Houston, Texas.
I currently am the American History I and II teacher and I also coach the defensive line for our football team. I look forward to making a lasting impression on all those I come across in the classroom and on the field.
