• About Mrs. Payes


    Hello!  I am Melissa Payes and I am so excited to be a part of the Music Department here at

    J. Michael Lunsford Middle School!  This is my second year at JML, and we have a very exciting year ahead of us.  I am a resident of Ashburn, Virginia, and have lived in Virginia my entire life.  I graduated from George C. Marshall High School in Fairfax County, and attended George Mason University where I graduated with a degree in Music Education.  I have a wonderful husband and four children, spanning from Elementary to High School Aged.  I also have two dogs that I love to cuddle and play with. This  year, I will be co-teaching Choir with Mr. Jacobs, as well teaching Music Lab for 6th grade and helping to co-teach 8th grade strings.
