President Hickerson Welcomes Members to a New School Year

Welcome Back to School!  I am so excited to start another terrific year in FCPS and to welcome back our outstanding teachers, custodians, cafeteria workers, instructional assistants, bus drivers and all our amazing FCPS staff.

This is an exciting time for us and I share your enthusiasm to provide the best educational experience possible for our students in Fairfax County.  We, at FEA, are committed to supporting you in your professional endeavors and we look forward to serving as your voice to advocate for your students and your profession.

Today, I visited 13 schools and was impressed by the professionalism and skills of our members to juggle the demands of the first day.  I am reminded of how proud I am to represent such an impressive and outstanding group of educators.

I plan to continue visiting schools at a rapid pace and soon I will be scheduling our first breakfast and lunch building visits.  I look forward to meeting all of you and discussing how we can collectively improve FCPS.  It is when we stand shoulder-to-shoulder that we can be a strong voice for our students.

To our members: I want to personally thank you for your membership.  Thanks to you, we are stronger together.  If you know someone who is interested in joining FEA, our membership form can be found here:
