Fairfax Academy for Communications and the Arts Photography teacher Kevin Smith is this month’s FCPS Cares winner for Region 5. Nominated by a student, Mr. Smith was recognized for his attention to students, patience and understanding. FCPS Cares 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.
“I’ve known this teacher for 3 years and this is my 2nd year having his class. Mr. Smith is the most genuine teacher I’ve ever had. He is attentive to each and every one of his students and truly cares for their success. There is no one experience I wish to describe because every experience in his class is special. Mr. Smith is patient and understanding, unlike many teachers I’ve had in the past he’s very encouraging and I know that I’ll never feel judged or a lesser person in his class. In conclusion, Mr. Smith’s class atmosphere is a strong educational and inspirational environment, I am at most myself in his class and I believe myself and many other students have come out of their shell as a result of Mr. Smith’s strong personality.”
