About Dee Hawksworth and OJHS

This is my twenty-sixth year teaching at Oakdale Junior High School!  I love my job, and I love eighth graders.  I have two kids of my own, and I have three cats (but I’m not a crazy cat lady… I actually prefer dogs).

My daughter is going to UC Santa Cruz, and my son is going to UC Berkeley. I’m a super-proud mama!

OJHS has about 805 students.  There are currently three full-time 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 here, and that’s a testament to how good the schools are. 🙂
