Mrs. Crawford is one of the primary reasons Robinson Secondary School has become a premier testing site in Fairfax County. As an hourly testing support assistant, Mrs. Crawford helps the school administer more than 10,000 tests each year. This includes hours of work; from choosing and preparing the test location to make sure that everyone – from students to instructors whose classrooms are being used – is being accommodated. Teachers praise her efficiency, cooperation and ability to find a solution to any testing challenge. “Mrs. Crawford is always there with a smile on her face,” says one, “ready to tackle the inevitable testing disruption.” When students succeed, notes another, “Mrs. Crawford is as overjoyed as they are.”

Ryan has used his technological expertise to help build a family culture at Robinson. In addition to sponsoring the student-led “Good Morning Robinson” daily news program, he livestreams the school’s athletic and academic events and coaches freshman football. A catalyst for inclusion, Ryan has taught students with disabilities how to film events, recorded a 20-CD collection of audio tapes for struggling readers, made a special needs student a manager and water boy for the football team, and helped an autistic student pursue a career as a broadcaster. “Ryan is one of a kind,” said a colleague, “and I doubt that I will ever come across another instructional assistant like him.” 

Congratulations also to the other Robinson Ram staff members who were recognized at the FCPS Honors!
