FEA Celebrates Important Victories

What a year it’s been!

The summer school break is finally right around the corner, so I want to share with you some of our victories this year in what was a real battle to protect Fairfax County public schools. We might be bruised and battered, but we made significant progress.

After 4 Years Away from Teaching, I See the Workload Increase First-Hand

I returned to teaching last September and a world that had changed in four short years.

For 17 years, I was a band director at Mark Twain Middle School. Then I took a leave of absence to become president of the Fairfax Education Association. Now, I’m back in the classroom at Luther Jackson Middle School.
