I have worked for LCPS now for 4 years as a Special Education Teacher Assistant. I have learned a lot both professionally and personally and am thankful for that. Throughout this experience you learn which teachers/staff members are truly there to help and who have a passion for what they do. Those are the ones that make a difference, and then you will find that there are ones who treat it as a high school gossip corner. Benefits are amazing however the pay is not. I am living paycheck to paycheck and am barely getting by. I have four reasons as to why I continue to work here- the benefits, they truly make a BIG difference and the students. I have worked hard to form great connections with the students for the past 4 years and have loved being able to witness them grow and see their potential. Location and the hours are a plus, being done at 3 is nice even though I never really leave on time.
Benefits, students, opportunity to grow, some colleagues that truly love what they do
Short lunch breaks, gossip, lack of support when needed
I currently work for LCPS as a Substitute teacher, and I've loved working for them from the start. This job has allowed me to learn so much and to dive into my future career as an educator. The hours are phenomenal, the staff at every school is remarkable and the most enjoyable part of this job is working with students from all over the county and from all different backgrounds.
Flexible hours, benefits, pay
The culture is one of shared community, inclusivity and an effort toward forward growth and improvement.
LCPS offers a supportive friendly environment in which any professional can grow and find both personal and professional contentment. The district is progressive yet traditional.
Loved working for LCPS. It was always an upbeat working environment with a great deal of support provided by the teachers and staff. Each work day varied, as each classroom is different. Hardest part of the job is dealing with a child who might be having a bad day and is disrespectful, but this is rare. For the most part, the kids are great. Pros outweigh the cons.
Supportive work environment and a lot of flexibility.
Standing of feet all day, occasionally when a teaching plan isn't prepared by the teacher, you need to really be able to think on your feet and come up with a lesson plan for the day, so as to be able to occupy and hopefully teach the children for that day.
Was only an intern but did not learn much and the work was very tedious. Better than working at McDonald's but only because the pay was higher.
The internship with DDI is not good for garnering experience but rather only money, which is good but not in the long term. There is no promotion or changes in the work the interns do - just washing laptops - which does not teach the interns anything.
Loudoun county was an excellent school system. It offered many opportunities for personal growth as well as learning new skills and programs. I was an aide for special education students as well as a attendance secretary and registrar for all new students entering the school. The hardest part of my job was to complete the days work load with constant interruptions via phone calls as well as parents visiting the school and covering the clinic if the nurse was out. I really enjoyed working with the students. The progress the students made from the beginning of the year to the end was remarkable. It gave me satisfaction that I played a role in their growth. I enjoyed working with my coworkers which included teachers, cafeteria staff, custodial staff and administration.
Holidays and weekends off. Job stability. Interaction with staff and parents.
No lunch breaks, putting in long hours which were not compensated, very heavy workload.

Developing curriculum, lessons, and activities that excite my students’ talents’ and passions’ proves infinitely rewarding. Although each day is not perfect, seeing the dedication and improvement from my students shows me how privileged I am to have such an honorable profession. Moreover, I relish the opportunity to integrate myself into the heart of a high school through clubs, sports, and other extracurricular activities.
I worked for LCPS for almost 9/years. In that time, my pay increased only 3k. There is no possibility for advancement, administration never has the back of any staff members and the parents run the school district and their out control kids can do no wrong. Benefit costs consumed 40% of my paycheck. Thankfully I worked with the best teachers in the world!!!
No accountability for hugher ups and kids.
A typical day at LCPS keeps you busy. There is a lot to learn in the LCPS system. The hardest part of the job for me working with the disability kids. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with others staff members.
short lunch breaks
The students and staff of Loudoun County Public Schools are hardworking and dedicated. This is a large school district that offer established communities that range from suburbs to rural.
Teacher enhancement programs.
High cost of living
