Mrs. Megan Murphy, Principal
to the Seven Locks Elementary School website! I am honored and humbled to be
able to serve the students, staff and families of the Seven Locks
community. As a school community, we
strive to create a caring and positive learning environment where all are
valued, respected and empowered to continually grow. My goal for each and every student is that
they will have endless choices in their future.
We will take the necessary steps to be sure they have the foundational
skills they need to open those doors in the future. As a staff we are extremely passionate about
our work of molding the future and hope to create students that are passionate
I was born and raised in Montgomery County. My three brothers and I were lucky enough to
attend and graduate from Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). We each had extremely dedicated and
passionate teachers that inspired us to set goals for our futures. These experiences inspired me to become a
teacher in order to provide future generations with the skills they need to
follow their dreams. I majored in
elementary and special education at Saint Joseph’s University. I loved my time in Philadelphia, but I always
knew I wanted to come back and work for MCPS.
This is my twelfth year in education and I have enjoyed every stage of
my career. I have had the opportunity to
serve in the role of classroom teacher, special educator, assistant principal,
principal intern and principal. I
believe that students are at the heart of our work and that all students can
excel to high levels through commitment, opportunities, relationships, and
On a personal note, I live in Olney with my husband, Brian, and
our three-year-old son, Kellen. Kellen
is very active and keeps me on my toes.
When not at school, I enjoy spending time with Brian & Kellen as
well as my parents and brothers. I
believe that making time for family is extremely important.
I look forward to continuing to build relationships with all
students, staff, and parents throughout the school year. As principal, I intend to focus on building
strong relationships with all stakeholders, effectively communicating, which
includes being available and accessible, maintaining a safe and positive
learning environment, and making sure that students have the opportunities they
need to achieve at high academic levels and that staff have the supports they
need to provide students with the best possible education. Together we will ensure that Seven Locks
Elementary School continues to be an amazing place to work and learn!
