Welcome to 4th grade! This is my third year teaching at Oakland Elementary, and I am so excited for what this year will bring. I look forward to working with you and your child as we learn and grow together socially and academically. I am a Clarksville Native and love this community as it continues to expand. I am happily married and have two teenage children and a very energetic dog. In my spare time, I am usually at the ballpark cheering my kids on, spending time with family, watching movies, or reading. I know that this year will lead to many great things, and if you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact me via Class Dojo or email. Let's go Owls!

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.
