fun and productive work place
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.

I really enjoyed working for FCPS
I enjoyed working for fcps , but not in the office. I worked at night, working in the office was interesting to put it mildly. I was a newbie and I was not treated respectfully in the Office.

Treated like professionals in all aspects of therapy.
Fairfax County Public Schools provided an excellent opportunity to learn about working in Pediatrics. Responsible for treating 3-22 year old children with special needs. Team collaboration, Evaluations, Progress Reports, discharge Planning, Individual Education Plans in close collaboration with team members, including families of children.
Hardest part of job was managing caseloads of several schools simultaneously.

Most enjoyable was record of success with problem solving, communicating with staff and children, mastering computer skills, paperwork efficient, productivity and exceeding goals.

Staff Is fun
Working at Centreville High was fun. The other students made me feel welcomed from the very start. We built a great working relationship. The flexibility to teach the students was nice to have.

Being able to choose your work sites and hours.
I enjoy working here. It is among the few jobs I really enjoy. I know my assignments in advance so and I stay pretty busy throughout the day. This would be a superb job if it offered benefits. 😊Because the job is very flexible, I usually obtain the opportunity to meet different people and to work with all grade levels and within any subject matter.

Horrible place to work. No support, they are out to get everyone.
Horrible place to work and grow. If you like streamling kids so they all know the basics, and don't acheive greatness then FCPS is the place for you.

Not bad for part-time work
Great benefits and retirement plans.

Looks like I need to add a lot more characters in order to complete this review. Like twenty more. Well. I think that's enough.

Intense and meaningful with a clear purpose
FCPS provides a very straight forward mission and goal for achievement... Teach students to succeed. However, resources, quality of personnel, and requirements vary by location. It makes it difficult to keep up with everything that is expected of you and maintain current on training while finding time to be effective in your role.

I love working in FCPS. There is not much I would change. The students are challenging and keep me evolving as a teacher in order to meet their needs. Many of my colleagues have become some of my closest friends.It is comfortable and safe place to have a career.

Great job if teaching is for you
I have had a great experience compared to what I have been told by other teachers. There are many training opportunities that are no cost to you. Like all teaching positions, there is a heavy workload with the expectation that a lot of work is done in your off time. There is a lot of professional support available as well. The benefits are great.
