Outcomes

One of the goals of the internship program is to have 100% of the interns hired in either Fairfax County or Arlington Public Schools. In 2008-09, this goal was realized with every single intern hired in these school systems.

There are more than 200 Marymount PDS graduates teaching in local schools. Graduates from this program have received numerous awards and honors over the years:

  • Three have been nominated and one has been selected as “Fairfax County Outstanding First-Year Teacher”
  • Nine have been nominated for the “Sallie Mae First-Year Teacher Award”
  • One received the Phi Delta Kappa “Excellence in Teaching Award”
  • Two received the Delta Kappa Gamma Society’s “Virginia Scholar's Award”
  • Two received the 2004 Virginia “Teacher of Promise Award” and one received this same award in 2010.
