Mrs. Valerie Simon joined our faculty this fall, teaching our Second Grade class. She and her husband, Esan, joined the FCS family last spring when they enrolled their three children in Kindergarten, Second and Fourth Grades.

Mrs. Simon has been teaching Kindergarten through Third Grade for more than ten years, in West Virginia, Georgia, Florida and North Carolina. Mrs. Simon brings a fresh perspective and a lifetime of experience to our already wonderful teaching corps. She is a welcome addition.

Mrs. Simon attended West Virginia University where she earned a degree in elementary education with a specialization in early childhood development.

A couple fun facts about Mrs. Simon: besides being an identical twin, she is a former competitive swimmer, competing in the Olympic Trials in 1996.

When asked why she teaches at the Fairfax Christian School, Mrs. Simon candidly replied, “I love teaching at FCS because I get to teach students very eager to learn, and I love seeing my three children in school every day.”
