Dear Students, Parents/Guardians, and Community Members,
¡Bienvenidos! Thank you for visiting the Oaklawn Language Academy webpage!
I’m excited to share the 2018-2019 school year and continue to work with the amazing students, staff, parents, and community of Oaklawn. I was thrilled to be announced as the proud principal of Oaklawn in March 2018. While I am not new to the Oaklawn Community, I am excited for this new role!
I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Iowa and began my career in Iowa teaching a wide range of grade levels. In 2005, teaching brought me to North Carolina where I taught for 10 years at Community Charter School before starting my journey in administration. After completing my M.S. in Educational Administration from Scranton University, I joined CMS as a facilitator at Newell Elementary for one and a half years. I then got the amazing opportunity to becoming the assistant principal at Oaklawn Language Academy in January 2016. Throughout my entire career, I have been committed to high achievement for Title I schools.
I am looking forward to an amazing year with the wonderful faculty and awesome students! It is my obligation to ensure that your child/children are learning in a safe, healthy, and happy environment. I believe that EVERY student can achieve and be successful! We can do this together through the wonderful support of our teachers, staff, and PTSA. I encourage all families to become involved in the Oaklawn Community any way they can and I look forward to our partnership this year!
