January 2018

2018 Jan EOMFor the month of January, the employee of the month is Tami Murphy, Transportation Scheduler in the Business Services Division.

Tami’s unwavering dedication to her team and the San Mateo County Office of Education is an inspiration to others. She brightens those around her with her sense of humor and lighthearted personality. Tami never fails to make her colleagues smile.

Tami has an exceptionally strong work ethic, and is quick to act when situations arise. For example, when the Transportation Department manager Cindy Macay fell ill for several months, Tami voluntarily took on increased responsibility, ensuring that core activities were done correctly and on time. When Ms. Macay unfortunately passed away, Tami supported the Transportation Department through a mandated CHP inspection. She provided the officer with all of the correct information and forms required by law, resulting in a pass with flying colors.

Tami has evolved at SMCOE, growing into someone who plans around issues and keeps ahead in operations. She works well with parents, especially when determining school pick up times, and collaborates closely with vendors to troubleshoot any issue that may come up.

We are proud of our SMCOE staff and are pleased to recognize Tami Murphy for her outstanding work. Congratulations to Tami for being named Employee of the Month for January 2018.
