Thomas Jefferson Elementary School third grade teacher Stephen Erick is the 2014 Falls Church City Public Schools Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher of the Year.
Students visited historic sites such as the Governor's Palace and the Capitol building, where they were able to show what they have learned about Virginia's roles in the American Revolution and the creation of our country. At the Courthouse, teachers like Mrs. Fay stood trial (but was found 'not guilty' of all charges.)
