This will be my sixth year here at Oakland Elementary as school nurse. Before becoming a school nurse I practiced mostly in the pediatric clinic setting and pediatric home health Most of my nursing experience has been in pediatrics and I have been a nurse for 24 years. I am married with two children. Children have always been my heart even before going into the field of nursing. School nursing is my chosen profession because it allows me to interact with the children on a one-on-one basis while taking care of their medical needs whether big or small. My goal is that every student that I come in contact with will feel that they are important and empowered to grow up to be whatever they want to be.

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.
