OGES Welcomes New Principal

Oak Grove Elementary welcomes Mrs. Christy Graham as our new principal beginning July 1.  The faculty and staff have already met Mrs. Graham and are excited for what next year holds for your children.

Next Tuesday, June 4, we will hold a Meet and Greet from 4:00-5:30pm in the cafeteria for OGE parents to come and meet Mrs. Graham and introduce yourself and your OGE students.

Below is a little bit about Mrs. Graham and her experience in education.

—————————————————————————————-
With 19 years of educational experience, Graham currently serves as assistant principal at Midway Elementary School and recently completed the district’s Aspiring Principal Academy.

Beginning her education career in 1999 as a second grade teacher at Myrtle Beach Elementary School in Horry County Schools, she moved to Myrtle Beach Middle School as a sixth grade mathematics and science teacher three years later. In 2007, Graham transferred to Conway Middle School as mathematics and science instructional coach. She moved to Saluda Middle School as a sixth grade science and social studies teacher in 2010. She then served as curriculum coordinator and assistant administrator at Newberry Elementary School in 2011.

Graham joined Lexington District One in 2013 as assistant principal at Midway Elementary. While there, she designed and implemented grade-level meetings, planned and implemented professional development based on the district’s strategic plan and school data, and served as testing coordinator, mentor and 4.0 Rubric evaluator.

Superintendent Greg Little, Ed.D., said, “Mrs. Graham’s experience as an educational leader at both the elementary and middle school level gives her a unique perspective and a variety of skills. She is full of energy, a recent graduate of our Aspiring Principal Academy and experienced with immersion programs as well as science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics labs.”

Graham received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Coastal Carolina University and a Master of Education in educational administration from the University of South Carolina. She holds certifications in elementary teaching and elementary leadership as well as elementary supervision (principal), and has received additional training in cognitive coaching.

She is a member of Delta Kappa Gamma, Beta Beta, the South Carolina Association of School Administrators and the Palmetto State Teachers Association.
