Guest blog by FCPS 2018 Teacher of the Year Timothy Snyder. Dr. Alban has invited past and present Frederick County Teachers of the Year to share their thoughts about their profession. Timothy Snyder, FCPS’s current Teacher of the Year, shares his advice for teachers at the start of the new school year.
This year, FCPS welcomes almost 43,000 students and their families back to school.
Over 300 teachers, psychologists, behavior specialists, and school counselors filled the auditorium at Tuscarora High School for the kick-off to our new-hire symposium. The symposium provides essential information our new hires need as they join the FCPS family.

Offices across the school system are open during the summer and they are all busy places. The FCPS Central Office is one of the busiest! The first person a visitor meets when they come to Central Office is one of our front desk receptionists.
Hunger does not take a summer vacation. That’s why I am so proud that FCPS offers a Summer Meal Program.
Summer is one of the busiest times of year for many FCPS employees. That’s especially true for the small team that helps manage our student data.
