I have found the Fairfax County work environment to be very relaxed and welcoming where children are happy to come to school each day. I learned to be a supportive team player.
School Social Worker in Fairfax, VA
on September 10, 2021
Having a supportive supervision has helped me enjoy my position at FCPS. Being a social worker is hard work and the procedures are ever changing, which can be frustrating. However, since I transitioned to part time, it has been much more manageable. Though, I do know hot everyone can do that.
Substitute Sacc Teacher in Fairfax County, VA

Though the schedule can be a bit grueling the payoff is massive as you get to help make kids lives better everyday. Good pay for your time and absolutely perfect for college students
SLP in Fairfax, VA
on August 5, 2021
I felt very supported by my special education supervisors. They make a clear effort to give your any resource and support you need. Caseloads can be a bit high but they will bring in support if you ask. Parents can be extremely demanding and don't understand the restrictions of public schools legally and financially. Upper management has no idea what is going on with special education and only think of it in terms of dollars.

FCPS is a goof company to work for because they provide great healthcare benefits. The pay is honestly not that great especially for counselors, but the benefits are good
