Congratulations to Ms. Efrosini Stavros on being recognized as the May 2022 Region 5 FCPS CARES Recipient of the Month by the Department of Human Resources!

The FCPS CARES Program is an opportunity for 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 a Willow Springs Elementary School parent.

Above and beyond does not even begin to describe Ms. Stavros! My son has been fortunate enough to not only be a student in her classroom this year but a thriving, valued member of her COMMUNITY. He has repeatedly come home telling various stories about his "community" instead of his "class." How powerful is that!?! Just a simple change of wording and mindset on the teacher's part has completely overhauled his outlook about what school means. He feels important, heard, and recognized for who he is. He takes risks because he feels safe. He has grown in every way possible. Ms. Stavros is passionate about having her students be a part of the decision-making process for the classroom, having a voice in their learning, and connecting with them on their interests and passions. Thank you will never be enough to show our gratitude to Ms. Stavros. She has become such a huge part of my son's story, and we feel forever grateful to her for that!
