Hello Cardinal Families,

I am glad to be a part of the Oakwood Elementary School as the Data Manager/Bookkeeper. 

As the Data Manager, it is my job to maintain the student information system currently called PowerSchool for our students. I’m responsible for maintaining the record of students’ attendance, class schedules, grades, enrollments, student withdrawals and transfer records, and preparing data reports as needed.

As the Bookkeeper, I am responsible for the school’s finances, such as general ledger entries, bank reconciliation, preparing bank deposits and ordering supplies for the operation of our school, along with duties given by the principal as needed. I’m dedicated to making sure that the school financial records are accurate and we’re following the required guidelines/policies of our local Board of Education and DPI requirements at the school level.

In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, shopping, reading, and listening to music. I have a love for butterflies and sunflowers. I have been employed by the Caswell School system for several years and I enjoy seeing the smiles on our students' faces. Our students are the future. I believe that every student is important and deserves to get the best education offered.

One of my favorite quotes is by Maya Angelou “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
