"I worked for FCPS for only 1 year, but I had an overall positive experience with the administration and the staff members I worked with on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the school I was placed at was severely underfunded in comparison with other schools in the same district, which made resources difficult to come by."

Fairfax County Public Schools Employee
in Fairfax, VA

"A great place to work. The teachers really enjoy support and expertise of people willing to provide service. But with too many supervisory obstacles, technicians quickly loose enthusiasm for providing great service.Supervision often cuts the technician with double dealing and outright subterfuge. The teachers are very grateful for good work. I enjoy doing what the teachers and staff need and want."

Substitute Teacher
in Falls Church, VA

"I've been working for FCPS since Jan 2008. I enjoy my job both as a substitute teacher and testing assistance coordinator. I in the meantime help several people at work by making copies for them and organize their desks for them. I also update the computers using Java to make sure they are ready for testing. I sometimes assist several teachers during testing and help them with testing to make sure their machines are working properly."
