Teaching Opportunities in Virginia

Interested in starting your teaching career in the Washington, DC area?

Dave Goldfarb from Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) in northern Virginia will host an information session on Tuesday, November 8 from 11:00-12:00 in Breiseth 205 to answer your questions and speak about teaching opportunities available in the DC region.

FCPS has almost 200 schools and hires approximately 1,500 teachers a year, and there are other large school systems in the area. Dave worked in FCPS high schools for 23 years, including 9 years as a principal. Now, he works in a central office position supporting out-of-state candidates who want to teach in FCPS. Dave has helped a few Wilkes students successfully transition to FCPS over the past four years. He can help you gain an awareness of expectations for FCPS teachers as well as what you can expect working in FCPS schools.

The session is open to all students interested in a teaching career. Interested but not able to attend? Contact Dave at for more information.
