Many are scared of the idea of ​​returning to middle school, but this is precisely the case at Stone Middle School in Fairfax County, where four former students are now staffed at a Virginia school.

Principal Meredith Norris has been working in the Fairfax County Public Schools for 18 years and this is her first year as principal. Making things extra challenging — she is taking on the job during the COVID-19 epidemic.

“I don’t think anything can prepare us for what we’ve been through for the past 18 months,” Norris said. “It’s a very unique journey.”

Despite that, Stone feels like a home away from home, he said.

“For staff and students, it really creates that family-like atmosphere,” Norris said.

Brooke Majors is in her second year of teaching special education English.

“Going into reality and then going back in person, that was definitely an experience. But I think at this time, Superwoman because we took shots and we just rolled around with it. We had a good time doing what we could,” Majors said.

Majors said relationships were important while at school, so she focused on getting to know her students.

“It doesn’t matter what it is, if I have a good relationship, it definitely helped me,” Majors said.

Lamar Hardy is a job security expert, but the title does not do justice to everything he does.

“I’m like a Swiss army knife,” he said.

In addition to working with a school resource officer and helping with student discipline, Hardy students play music outside in the morning.

“You can listen to your favorite song, or you can move a little bit. I’m always trying to make everyone laugh and have a good time, so I dance and nothing.”

They like dining duty, where they can sit at dining tables and talk to children who are usually not open to adults.

Evon is an office assistant at Woodstone.

“When I’m a student, there’s something about it. Everyone really cares about each other. They can’t count how many times someone comes into the office during the day and they say, ‘How’s it going? How’s your day going?'” Wood said.

Another member of the Wood family is connected to Stone. Her 13-year-old daughter Summer is eighth grade there.
