Employee of the Month
Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Elizabeth Martello
We recognize an employee in our school system who’s the “ultimate staff member.” Elizabeth Martello, Teacher Assistant at Jones Elementary School.
Mrs. Martello consistently goes above and beyond her job responsibilities to support each and every student that she encounters. You can find her actively preparing, creating, and supporting both students and teachers in the classroom.
She is organized and always thinks ahead to prepare for instruction in the classroom while also managing IEP paperwork, timelines, and other important documents. Her work ethic speaks for itself as she has frequently offered to substitute in vacant classrooms when substitutes are not available.
Mrs. Martello’s first priority is always the students which is visible from the moment she steps through the door. She supports student learning in self-contained classrooms; providing small group assistance, creating anchor charts, and facilitating intervention groups…just to name a few. She actively participates with the special education team and is considered the “go-to” staff member when it comes to IEP paperwork. She reaches out to families ensuring that their feedback is gathered well.
Her enthusiasm and determination have positively impacted Jones Elementary; arriving each day with a smile on her face. Her presence in the lunchroom and during recess duty help to maintain structure and routine for the children. She is a knowledgeable resource for teachers; mentoring her colleagues with various instructional strategies or techniques to implement. Mrs. Martello is trusted in our school community and the staff at Jones Elementary School are lucky to have her.
So, on behalf of the Board of Education, the students, teachers, and staff of Anne Arundel County Public Schools we are pleased to recognize you as Employee of the Month for March 2020. Congratulations!
