It is with mixed emotions we announce that Fairfax Education Association Executive Director JoAnn Karsh will retire on August 29, 2014. JoAnn’s penetrating analysis, thoughtful support to our elected leadership, and dedication to strengthening our membership will be sorely missed. As she embarks on the next phase of her life, she concludes 32 years of service to education and the Virginia Education Association.

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.
