Welcome to Oxford Elementary School!  I can not tell you how special Oxford Elementary School is in words, you will just have to see for yourself.  I would love to give you a tour.  In fact, our students will give you a tour.  That is one of my favorite parts about OES is that the students are the driving force in the building.  

I am the International Baccalaureate Coordinator of Daniel Axford and Oxford Elementary school.  It is truly amazing to see how beautifully connected our schools really are.  After teaching kindergarten, first, and second grade for seven years at Daniel Axford I have a deep understanding of where our students came from.  Now I get the opportunity to see what they have become at their sister school.  I learn from our incredibly intelligent staff, beautiful children, and supportive parents every day.  I have a great passion for our International Baccalaureate program. My focus is aimed at helping implement this high quality and rigorous program.  The most striking part of IB is it’s continuous push for a better and more peaceful world. The best part of my work day consists of working with staff, parents, students, our community, and my global friends.

I was so enthusiastic to start my career in Oxford as a graduate of Oxford High School.  I studied Language Arts and Art Education for my undergraduate degree, traveling Italy to advance my knowledge in Education.  I finished my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership, at Oakland University.

On a personal note, I married my best friend, Danny who is a Flint Firefighter.  We have two beautiful daughters.  Any moment we have together as a family is priceless. Even as a family we are always striving to live the Learner Profile traits, as they are words that continue to inspire us.
