FCPS strives to be on the cutting edge of education. Benefits are great! I learned a lot about assessing students on proficiency instead of accuracy. I also appreciated the effort to meet the needs of a diverse population of students. The hardest part of my job has been to go from playing a large role in designing instruction that engaged students and lead them to success to now being told to teach to the test and having to narrowly stay within the lane of that requirement.

Deceptive clicks working in management seeking to cover their backs through blaming staff beneath them for failures.
Top positions filled with staff that is incompetent and lacking educational experience for management of positions they are responsible for.

It's a great job working with in different schools and different ages. I enjoy working with challenging students the most and seeing them grow not only in their education but their mentality and maturity. I remember being a student myself and having a teacher go the extra mile to get me through. I love helping others to excel and succeed!

Great job for working w kids. Pay is extremely low- pay raises are done by step, not by merit and are always way under $1/hour. Under appreciated by most staff and admin . No chance for advancement.Snow days are a bonus if you are benefitted. If you’re not, then you don’t get paid. Expect to do a lot of jobs no one else wants to do. Gotta love the kids though, they make the job.

Good employer with good benefits. Excellent way to get to know people in your community. The benefits outweigh anything negative. You will work hard but the reward in the end is positive

They were picky about everything such two or three minutes punching in and/or out. How to clean this and that with certain people i mean dusting the floor every day and others would not dust their floor at all. Supervisory staff did not help only made the situations worst. No understanding or support only suspicious of employees trying to get over.

Administrators change regularly and the impact on daily profession is significant. However, as a district, there are many positives and some drawbacks which average out to a moderate rating.

The hardest part of my job was knowing that my salary would only increase by pennies each year no matter how long I would be in the position and that my increased responsibilities would not bring about any changes.

Subbing is a good job for stay at home parents or those who want flexibility in days and hours worked. I have had only positive experiences in each of the schools I have worked at. I would recommend this job.
