Mrs. Payton Alfano

My name is Payton Alfano, and I am an exceptional child teacher here at Richlands High School. I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to Jacksonville in the fall because my husband, Jon, is a Marine.  I graduated from Georgian Court University in May of 2022 with a Bachelors degree in English, Elementary Education K-6, and a K-12 special education endorsement. I love going to the beach, spending time with family and friends, and traveling!  I am also the JV cheer coach here at RHS!  Feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments, or concerns at I am very excited about beginning my teaching career at Richlands High School.  Go Wildcats!!
