Congratulations to Tricia Wayland on being recognized as the May FCPS Cares Recipient of the Month for Region 2 by the Department of Human Resources. Congratulations, Ms. Wayland!

Below is the write up submitted by a Sleepy Hollow Elementary School parent.

Ms. Wayland is a kind, caring and considerate teacher who always puts her students first. Two of my children have been privileged to have her as their teacher and their champion. My student came home recently talking about how much she loves lunch now, and I asked what had changed and she said, “Ms. Wayland lets us eat lunch in the classroom with her almost every day if we want”. Who knew that a teacher giving up her lunch period could make such an impact on students?  Her classroom management is evident in the way that the students treat each other with dignity and respect. My child loves Ms. Wayland and loves going to school. She challenges my child while making learning and reading fun. No matter the day or time, Ms. Wayland is responsive to my emails and offers quick solutions to any situation. I have seen her on soccer, baseball, and football fields watching current and past students games and cheering them on. It amazes me how proud the kids are that she attends their games and they run to her with hugs and the same question – “Where’s Scotty (her dog), Ms. Wayland?” Her response is always the same, 'At home with mama Wayland playing with Bo.' My family is fortunate to have had Ms. Wayland not only once but twice, and hopefully a third time next year. We appreciate her genuine smile and effort to make a difference in the lives of all her students. She is a positive role model who values and respects her students.
