Principal - Angela Blue 

Assistant Principal - Jill Smith

My name is Jill Smith and I am excited to have been a part of Oakhurst STEAM Academy since its reopening in August of 2015 first as Dean of Students and now as Assistant Principal.  I am originally from Ohio (Go Browns!) and moved to Charlotte to begin my teaching career.  I taught many years as a 7th grade math teacher and was a professional development facilitator at a K-8 school in CMS. I am married and am a parent to a fur-baby.  I am looking forward to another great year at Oakhurst!


Counselor - Vanessa Sealey


Hi, my name is Ms. Vanessa Sealey. I live in North Carolina with my son Elijah who is 15 years old and in high school this year. I love traveling and being with family and friends. I will be your child's school counselor for the 2018-2019 school year! This year will be my 9th year as a school counselor and my 4th year at Oakhurst STEAM Academy and I am excited to make this my best year yet!

Literacy Facilitator - Anne Lee


HI! I am so excited to be beginning my fourth year at Oakhurst STEAM Academy as literacy facilitator! This will be my 13th year in education. I have taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th, but have really enjoyed being a facilitator over the past 6 years. I am originally from Ohio, and will always be a Buckeye at heart! I have two boys and my family loves all that Charlotte has to offer. You can often find us at a park on the weekend or at a festival! My door is always open for any of your literacy needs. 


Math Facilitator - Nikki Mackey


Hello!  When I am not encouraging problem solving skills and mathematical reasoning at Oakhurst, I am a wife and mom too.  My daughter is a very curious and talkative 3 year old. I am originally from Pennsylvania, but I have lived in Charlotte for 15 years now.  Whether it is experiencing outings in Charlotte or relaxing at the beach, I really enjoy spending time with my family.  I also love cheering on the 6 time Super Bowl champs, Pittsburgh Steelers!!!
