Educator of the Month

  • The Board of Education is pleased to honor, Ms. Tamara Kelly Molock, Principal at Marley Elementary School as the June 2021 Educator of the Month!

    Each morning Tamara can be found in her office recording a Principal’s message that is played for students at the end of each day. This allows students to be engaged with her whether they are virtual or hybrid and remind them that we are as strong Marley Mustang Family.

    Throughout this pandemic, Ms. Kelly Molock has been a calm, cool, and collected leader. While everyone has been uncertain about the unknows, Tamara answered questions, sent out a roundup each week containing information pertaining to the upcoming week, schedules and logistical information. She always has the best interest of everyone at heart when making even the most difficult decisions. 

    Ms. Kelly Molock truly shows empathy and compassion as a leader. She uses her own past experiences as an educator when thinking about what she asks of her teachers. She’s encouraging and consistent. She is professional yet doesn’t hesitate to participate in fun spirit week activities. She ensures her staff and students are well and helps whenever she is needed. She never hesitates to listen to concerns and communicate, ensuring the school has equitable practices for both staff and students. Her door is always open.

    For all these reasons and more, the Board of Education and Anne Arundel County Public Schools congratulate you on being chosen as this month’s Educator of the Month!
