Virtual Prince William (VPW) instructors are Prince William County Public Schools teachers who are either still teaching in a traditional classroom and online, or only teaching online. They are all highly qualified in their content area.

All VPW instructors have proven success teaching in both traditional and online classrooms. All instructors complete a 7-9 week online teacher methodology course, and are required to complete continuous improvement professional learning during their tenure with VPW.

Our instructors take great pride in their unique ability to instruct students from a distance. Please feel free to contact any of our lead instructors listed here.
