Congratulations to Ms. Jessica Yaman on being recognized as the June 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 parent of a Wakefield Forest Elementary School parent.

My son was a bit behind in reading and writing starting off 3rd grade. I wanted to share that after a year with Mrs. Yaman, that is not the case. Through her wonderful teaching ability and relationship-building skills with her students, our son, is doing well. So well, in fact, when he shared with me the poems he had written during their poetry lesson, I was blown away at how good one of them was. I googled some scholastic poetry competitions that were open in the spring and he entered them. We found out at the beginning of May his poem was accepted to be published in "A Celebration of Poets" and is in the running to place top 10. The contest is a nationwide competition held by Creative Communication. Taylor Swift entered when she was in 5th grade. In sharing our family's proud moment, I wanted to take the time to write and express our gratitude to Mrs. Yaman and recognize her teaching impact. This opportunity for Joe to experience and have so much excitement to say "Let's gooooo!" when I told him this news is all because of Mrs. Yaman. We have truly had a wonderful school year and experience with Mrs. Yaman and her diligent care and love for her students.
