Congratulations to Ms. Ashley Scott on her recognition as the October 2023 FCPS CARES Region 1 Recipient of the Month, by the FCPS Department of Human Resources.

The FCPS CARES Program allows parents, staff, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others and show they care. We invite you to submit your story below so we can all acknowledge the good work of FCPS employees.

Below is the write-up submitted by Ms. Karen Rowley, a colleague at Oakton High School. 

As a high school librarian, I have a limited number of nonfiction picture books. I was working with a World History teacher on creative ways to engage her students at the start of their unit study on the development of civilizations and Ancient Egypt. We decided we wanted to do a read-aloud and then a picture book exploration for content, and as modeling for their picture book project, they would complete it as a culminating activity. I explained the project to Ashley and asked if she could send me some Ancient Egypt picture books I could use. More than simply sending me a few books, Ashley took the time to go through her Ancient Egypt collection and send me books on all aspects of Ancient Egyptian civilization, while also finding the perfect fiction picture book (that I did not even know about) that explores the development of civilization in general, which would more effectively accomplish the goals the teacher and I had. She took time from her day to help me develop an entire set of materials to fit the needs of students from a completely different school from her own. I appreciate her kindness and professional collaboration, which helped advance a lesson plan to a more reflective and relatable level for students.
