Hello! I'm Tiffanie Payne Lake from Ogden, Utah. I moved to Cortez July 2013, and plan to stay for many years to come! I married my husband in March 2014 and we have one child together.

At MCHS I am part of the Exceptional Student Services team, and mainly focus on helping students with their math skills. I'm also a part of developing the ACE work program, which targets students who are excited about getting jobs, keeping jobs, and how to get education for future jobs. We plan on expanding this program in new and exciting ways over the next few years.

I LOVE SW Colorado!!!! My main sports are hiking, mountain biking, downhill skiing, and cross-country skiing. My favorite places so far are Phil's World, Boggy Draw, The Colorado Trail, Priest Gulch, Bear Creek, Lizard Head Wilderness, La Plata Canyon, Twin Buttes, Mesa Verde, Canyons of the Ancients, and all of the ski slopes!
