Great place to work.....but

Teacher (Former Employee)
Fairfax, VA

I worked at Fairfax County Public Schools

ProsWorking for FCPS as a teacher does have a lot of positives. The health benefits are great, and there are a ton of resources for teachers to grow and collaborate. Support from the administration is probably best judged on a school by school basis, but my principal was great. The job is great and I loved working with the kids. I had a ton of resources at my disposal and was able to be very successful.

ConsThe con of working for FCPS exists with the Fairfax County Board of Commisioners and the school board. Salaries have been frozen for several years and this essentially amounts to a pay cut. You are better off working at surrounding counties.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to pay teachers what they deserve.
