PJ Pcsolinski, Assistant Prinicpal

I have been an Assistant Principal at James Monroe High School since August 2021.  Prior to James Monroe, I was Assistant Principal at Lafayette, a PE teacher at Hugh Mercer ES and Hylton HS in Prince William County.  I was born and raised in Newport News, Virginia and I am the product of two educators.  I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Virginia Tech, where I also played two sports.  I am unbelievably loyal to the Hokies.  After teaching and coaching for the first ten years of my career, I earned a Master’s degree in Administration and Supervision from Virginia Commonwealth University.  In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, traveling, attending Virginia Tech sporting events, and coaching high school wrestling.

I absolutely love working at James Monroe and in FCPS.  The staff at JMHS is the most dedicated group of individuals I have ever been associated with in my educational career.  The students and families are a joy to work with here, and I thoroughly enjoy fostering relationships with students.

Despite the challenges of our upcoming school year, I am looking forward to supporting students and families in any way possible.  Feel free to contact me via email or phone to discuss any concerns you may have this year.
