Office of the Superintendent
Hello! Thank you so much for visiting our website. We strive to keep it up to date, user friendly, and chock full of helpful information. We are, however, constantly trying to improve both the service we provide to our students and parents, and the measurable outcomes that we constantly monitor. If you have suggestions for us, we are happy to listen!
The Mother Teresa quote at the top of the page is one of my favorites, and has tremendous relevance for schools and educators. Schools should be safe places, both physically and emotionally, where kids and adults can go in order to be nurtured, cared for, treated with dignity, and shown peace. It is our responsibility to foster this type of environment for students and staff. The fact is, students learn more and are much more likely to be successful if they are cared for and feel connected to at least one adult within their school. Imagine a school environment where every stakeholder felt a responsibility to care for one another? I think this is what Mother Teresa was trying to say, albeit not with schools in mind, specifically.
The 2019-2020 school year represents my seventh year as the superintendent of Fauquier County Public Schools. I love my job, and I love this school community! Our students are high achievers, our teachers are second to none, and our staff members care deeply for kids. Our small schools and moderate class sizes generate a community feel within each of our buildings, and we do not provide "cookie cutter" learning environments. All kids are important and deserve an equitable education with unfettered access to educational opportunities and resources. This is what we strive for.
2019-2020 is going to be a great year! I am proud to be considered the ultimate cheerleader for FCPS, a role that I take very seriously.
