Mr. Mitchell Pavelko

Hello!! My name is Mitchell Pavelko. I am so excited to continue to be a part of the Trailside community! I am a graduate of Radford University (GO Highlanders) who will be starting my fourth year here at Trailside Middle School. I received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Radford University.

I recently proposed to my fiance Lisa, who is also an educator (Dean at Discovery Elementary). We live in Aldie, VA and we are getting married on October 22nd, 2022. 

I am originally from Loudoun County Virginia, and have lived and attended school here my entire life. In my free time, I love to watch any type of sports on television. My favorites are football and hockey (Washington Commanders & Capitals). I also enjoy the occasional video game and love hanging with my family and friends. I love playing golf and going to the gym as well. I believe EVERY student is capable of succeeding in their academic careers, and as a teacher I will never give up on any student. I am beyond excited to work with your child this year. Feel free to contact me any time at
