Congratulations to Ms. Courtney Wolfson on being recognized as the March 2022 Region 2 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 Mr. Mark Thompson, a colleague at McLean High.

"Courtney Wolfson is an unquestionable asset to the McLean Category B Special Education program. She is always responsive to requests for assistance in creating positive behavior programs for the students. She always bases intervention strategies on the strengths of the students and brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience of applied behavior analysis. She doesn't just give suggestions to staff, she rolls up her sleeves and demonstrates how the interactions/interventions should be implemented. She works with students with very challenging behavior and never has she balked at working directly with these students and helping staff implement effective behavior modification strategies. She has attended our CT meetings offering her incredible knowledge about IEP goal writing and effective classroom programming. The Category B Special Education Program at McLean functions much more effectively having Courtney Wolfson as a member of the team.  She works with us to implement strategies and interventions that provide the students with opportunities to achieve to their greatest potential. The date of the experience is not actually truthful, Courtney did not just start being an asset to the program, she was an asset the first day she started working with us many years ago! Thank you Courtney from the entire CAT B Program at McLean!
