    Director of Bands


    My name is Mrs. Payne and this is my twelfth year teaching at Hawfields Middle School.  I was born in Virginia, but grew up in Wake Forest, NC.  I graduated UNC Greensboro with my BM in Music Education in 2006 and  with my MM in Music Education August of 2013.  I am primarily a saxophone player, but also can be seen performing on flute.  I live in Burlington with my 9 year old son, Aiden, my 1 year old, Aaron, and my husband, Ron (a former band director).  I love teaching and learning about music!
