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 third 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. I also have two dogs that I love to cuddle and play with. Choir will look different this year, but it's still going to be amazing and I cannot wait to get started!
