Message from our Administration

“Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education.” Martin Luther King Jr.

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the principal of Oak Springs Elementary. This historical gem of East Austin was built on a belief system of high standards and educational excellence. The prominent history of Oak Springs will serve as the foundation of our purpose that drives our passion to educate the whole child, while igniting a flame for a lifetime of learning.

Our adopted belief of being #DolphinStrong will continue to come into fruition as we collaboratively work towards meeting the individualized needs of each student. Together with the families, staff, and neighborhood partners, we will thrive as a school community. Through utilizing a strengths-based approach to learning, and setting high-standards for all (students, staff and partners), our community will exemplify the meaning of being #DolphinStrong.

I am energized and committed to building relationships, customizing learning and creating inspirational opportunities built on the strengths of each student. #WEareOakSprings
