Ms. Tonya Mock

East Millsboro Elementary School

Millsboro, DE

Nomination: "Although Ms. Mock is younger than me, I have been raised to respect educators; therefore, I continue to call her Ms. Mock. Ms. Mock was my children's 4th grade teacher (I have triplets). They are now 17 and she continues to be a part of their lives. She is such a caring teacher that doesn't mind going the extra mile for her students. The year that she had my children that particular class exceeded the curriculum; therefore, she had the task of finding work that would continue to challenge them. To be honest, I believe she had to begin giving them 5th grade work as 5th grade was such a breeze to them. She would often come to her students after school activities such as little league. In addition, when my husband passed away about 3 years ago, she was there for my children. She would come to the house and spend time with them. They are now Juniors in high school and she continues to stay in touch with them to make sure they are on the right track. I often compare her to Erin Gruwell in the movie "Freedom Writers." You will find that many of the parents keep in touch with Ms. Mock after their children have moved on. Also, some of the parents had wanted Ms. Mock to move up with our children to 5th grade. At that time, it was not allowed but she was able to do that for one of her classes. She is not only beautiful outside but more beautiful inside. She actually loves teaching!!"
