Hello Falcon Family,
It is with excitement and great pride that I introduce myself as the new Principal of Fairfield Middle School. It is a tremendous honor to return HOME to the place where I started my administrative journey back in 2012!
I have been in education for the past 14 years, as a School Counselor, Administrative Intern, Assistant Principal and Associate principal for the last 8 years, all in Henrico County Public Schools. I feel that these experiences combined with my dedication to student success will serve the Falcon community well.
It is my goal to get to know my students and staff as soon as possible as well as meet with parents and community stakeholders. My philosophy of leadership is very simple, Equality of Opportunity, every Falcon will be provided the equitable, engaging educational experience that they deserve!
You will quickly see that I am a hands -on instructional leader that loves to spend my day visiting classrooms, talking with students and staff and jumping in to lend a helping hand.
Just as I want to get to know each of you, I want to share a few things about me. I am a proud 1990 graduate of Varina High School. I received my undergraduate degree from Norfolk State University, my masters degree and post-masters degree from Virginia State University. I have one son Michael and the best nephew ever, Jaxson.
I look forward to a great journey with each and everyone of you as we work TOGETHER to Build A Culture of Excellence that will allow our Falcons to continue to RISE!
Your Proud Principal,
Ms. Gena S. Jones
