This is my twenty-fifth year teaching at Oakdale Junior High School! I love my job, and I love eighth graders. I have two kids of my own (actually, I have to share them with their dad), and I have three cats (which I have to share with my daughter). I don’t have to share anything with my son except my corny sense of humor, and he’d rather I didn’t share that at all. I got a dog two years ago, and her name is Molly. She’s a character!
My daughter attends OHS, and my son is going to UC Berkeley. I’m a super-proud mama!
OJHS has about 805 students. There are four eighth grade English teachers, and there are three seventh grade English teachers. Mr. Webb is the principal, Mrs. Medlin and Mr. Allen are the vice-principals, and Mrs. Crawford is our lone counselor. The superintendent of Oakdale Joint Unifed School District is our former principal, Mr. Mark Malone. This is a great district. Even before I lived in Oakdale, I brought my kids to school in Oakdale, and that’s a testament to how good the schools are. 🙂
