    Director of Bands


    My name is Mrs. Jennifer Payne and this is my 15th 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 10 year old son, Aiden, my 2 year old, Aaron, and my husband, Ron (a former band director). I love teaching and learning about music!
