Message from the president:

Greetings Fairfax Alliance of Black School Educators,

As we prepare to return to support our students after a well-earned summer respite, I wanted to say thank you in advance for your time, your commitment, your resilience, and your joy! Yes, joy!

We had the opportunity to celebrate Black Excellence and experience true joy at our FABSE Honors Awards and Recognition program last June! We were able to showcase and elevate the work of our shining stars in the division and those who committed so much of their sweat, tears, and love for FABSE and for our students! We also were able to uplift our future! Because of the members of FABSE and your collective efforts and financial support, we were able to award 5- $1000.00 scholarships to college bound seniors! Talk about Black Joy!

While I am excited about what we were able to accomplish last year by using our voices and getting involved in the arena; our work continues! As I stated in May, at our last general body meeting, we will remain focused on the mission and goals of FABSE and our Big 8 Priorities. We will do so by:

  • Being of Service to our community
  • Advocating for our Big 8 Priorities
  • Deepening our work as affinity group and safe space for Black professionals in FCPS
  • Continuing to spread the news so we can grow as an organization

I don’t take lightly that you have chosen to be a member of this organization and have set aside time in your busy calendars to assist us in the important work of improving the educational outcomes of all students in FCPS, and particular, Black students in FCPS! 

We will continue to make change happen through vision, organization, hope and action!! Now it is time to renew our commitment by renewing our membership for the 2021-2022 school year. Please ensure that you take time out to visit our website and renew your membership by clicking on Join Us! In addition, spread the word about FABSE! Let’s increase our membership numbers again this year!

Again, I hope everyone is rested, rejuvenated, recharged, and energized for the next chapter!

All the best,

Anthony Harris
