VBCPS launches new ‘We Are VBSchools’ blog

In Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS), there are more than 68,000 students, 14,500 employees and countless parents, volunteers, mentors and partners in education.

Each one of those thousands has a story to tell - each brings his or her unique perspective, passion and viewpoint to classrooms and schools across the division every day.

While the public at large may not have the opportunity to meet all of these people face-to-face, VBCPS leadership wanted everyone to have the chance to hear from them. As such, the school division has launched a new interactive blog, “We Are VBSchools.” This blog, which can be found at www.vbcpsblogs.com/WeAreVBSchools, showcases students, staff as well as the men and women who volunteer their time for the school division. The blog houses photos as well as direct quotes from the featured people as they talk about their lives, their plans or maybe just what they are up to that day.

“There’s nothing like working in public education,” said Dr. Aaron Spence, superintendent of Virginia Beach schools. “Every day, you meet new people, you get to hear from them and you, of course, learn more about yourself as you learn more about others. It is my hope that our Virginia Beach community as well as folks across the country will visit this blog and get to see the fun, the insightful and the dedicated people who make up this great school division.”

Families are encouraged to come back to the site for each day’s new post and to share them on their social media channels. VBCPS will also share the “We Are VBSchools” features through social media postings.
