Meet The Counselor

Hello!  My name is Molly Moomau and this is my second year as a school counselor at Tyler. I am excited for another great year! I attended Longwood University for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees (Go Lancers!) and am happy to be part of the Tyler team. In my spare time, I enjoy walking my dogs, reading, and  being with my family.

Role of the Counselor

My role as a school counselor is to facilitate and deliver a program that helps students in the areas of academic achievement, social and emotional development, and college and career readiness.  This is done through meeting with students individually, in small groups, and monthly class lessons.  I also collaborate with parents/caregivers, school faculty and other stakeholders to breakdown barriers to success




Tyler's Counseling Program


“Tyler Elementary School, where every child is valued and given the tools to succeed academically, socially, emotionally, and in their career development”.



Tyler Elementary School Mission:
Provide a challenging, collaborative and authentic learning environment in in which high expectations lead to success within a diverse community.

Tyler Elementary Counseling Department Mission:

-During the 2018-2019 school year Tyler Elementary officially earned the designation as a No Place for Hate School from the Anti-Defamation League.  This is awarded to schools who work collaboratively with students, staff, and community members to combat prejudice and enhance a culture of respect in the school and community.
