Please join me in supporting Terri Taylor for the OJUSD Area 2 School Board position. I have known Terri for over 33 years, having met her shortly after beginning my teaching career in Oakdale. During this time, I have seen her work in many positions in the district, including substitute teacher, 6th grade teacher, Vice Principal, Principal, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, and School Board member. While working in each of these positions, Terri has consistently proven to be knowledgeable, approachable, open to new ideas, and someone who is genuinely proud of the Oakdale Joint Unified School District. Additionally, Terri has always been incredibly generous with her time and resources. For example, she has supported students through volunteering with the Oakdale Sports Boosters, working at Sober Grad Night for many years, and serving as the scorekeeper for OHS girls’ basketball. She has also regularly attended sporting events, concerts, and theater productions. She has created a scholarship for OHS students who attended Sierra View Elementary School, the school at which she was the first Principal, and has supported the scholarship every year since 2011. Terri has also donated her monthly School Board pay last year to support students through a variety of programs, including Outdoor Education, Drama Club, sports, FFA, scholarships, and Parent Club-sponsored fundraisers.
Terri truly cares about our kids and community! Her experienced educational leadership, unwavering dedication to the Oakdale Joint Unified School District, and support of its students make her the best candidate for the OJUSD Area 2 School Board position. Please join me in voting for Terri Taylor!
