The future is walking in our hallways and sitting in our classrooms daily. It all starts right here at Oakland Elementary School.
I have been working with CMCSS for 17 years, with experience in third grade, kindergarten, academic coaching, and providing reading interventions. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with students everyday.

Though my passion is teaching children the skills needed to become independent readers, I feel very strongly about increasing parental and community involvement within the lives of students. It takes a village to educate the whole child; physically, emotionally, and academically. It is my desire to not only build strong relationships among students, parents, and staff, but also members of the community.

Oakland uses a positive behavior matrix that promotes student awareness in expected behaviors.  This matrix can be seen in every room, throughout the building, is described in our school handbook located in the front of each student's provided OWL planner, and builds off our character trait acronym (WISDOM) banners handing from our foyer ceiling.  Each desired trait is broken down to identify school related desired behaviors to create student understanding and awareness of expectations.  These indicators are also linked to Class Dojo, which is used not only by teachers but throughout the entire building by special area teachers, special service providers, support staff, and administrators to provide consistency for our students and with parent communication.  The six overarching categories/character traits that student friendly indicators are broken down for on the visual matrix that students are taught about and expected to strive for are:

  • Work Ethic
  • Integrity
  • Self-discipline
  • Determination
  • Optimism
  • Motivation

Follow the link below to view the full "Dojo and Matrix Cheat Sheet".  This is designed to show the connection between the values on the matrix and the skills that are on Class Dojo.
