World & Classical Language
“I have so much support within this school system. From teachers and principals who are now like extended family, to the Area Directors, the Chief School Performance Officer and the Superintendent himself. I feel like a valuable part of this organization, and there are several people that I have to thank for being a mentor to me along the way. It is a great feeling to work in a place where you are both trusted to do what’s best for schools and supported in the decisions that you make. There is truly a sense of teamwork within Anne Arundel County Public Schools. All departments work toward the same goal, to do what’s best for students.”

"I am so grateful that my career has begun in Anne Arundel County. As a second year teacher, AACPS has been extremely supportive and has offered me valuable mentoring and professional development opportunities. In addition to the support provided by the RSA program, the county has filled their schools with knowledgeable and energetic teachers who care about students and learning. Anywhere you look in this county, you'll find people who care about students and who want to help you grow as a teacher."

“Having worked in multiple school districts around the country, I have found AACPS to be an exceptional employer. The leadership and staff of this phenomenal school district support and nurture me as I strive to grow professionally and personally. I have never worked with and for so many dynamic individuals who have believed in my work as much as (and in some cases even more than) I do myself. I often recommend this school district as a great place to work.”
