Congratulations to Mr. Jay O'Rourke on being recognized as the April 2022 Region 1 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 Langley High School parent.

Mr. O’Rourke has changed the math for my daughter. His amazing sense of humor and open and inviting demeanor draws her in each day. We hear story after story of how he uses math jokes, puns, or even Tik Tok trends to engage his students with the incredibly challenging curriculum he presents. Between stories of how he door dashed some donuts to class for his students, “Just cause,” she excitedly shares new math concepts that she, thank goodness, understands somehow. For a girl who struggled with math in ES, her math teachers have been truly inspiring and have made a lifelong impact. We thank you, Mr. O’Rourke, and wish you could be there for our girls in all of their math classes. You’ve made a difference and we are grateful.
