    I worked at Fairfax County Public Schools

    Pros

    The kids are a great subsection of the population, and have a great attitude. The new leadership coming in as of Fall 2010 is amazing, and expect great things from him and the people he brings with him.

    Cons

    The previous 6 year administration, destroyed the communal culture and drove out a lot of the best teachers and staff. The rest have lots of potential, but need a strong leader that can revitalize the community. The biggest challenge will be the 1940's authoritative managers that the previous administration put in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a great group of kids and teachers to work with, I wish you the best. Make sure to quickly identify, isolate, and remediate the large number of managers and few number of teachers that are the power players. The entire staff needs quick wins to re-empower their belief and commitment. They will determine how quickly and successfully you can revitalize the school. I have high hopes that Hayfield is on an upswing, and that it will shortly be a great place to work.
