Principal Christy Graham
Greetings Oakleaf Junior High Parents and Community stakeholders. My name is Christy Graham and it is truly my pleasure and honor to become Principal here at Oakleaf Junior High School.
My 20 plus years of educational experience have all been here in the state of Florida. I moved to Clay County in 2001, when my husband was still active duty in the military and was assigned to NAS Jax. I began my career as an ELA teacher at Green Cove Springs Junior High for 8 years and then ventured into Virtual Education and joined FL virtual school as a High School English teacher for 5 years. I soon realized just how much I missed the face to face interactions with my colleagues and students and came back to Clay County as an Administrator in 2013, and for 8 years I served as both Assistant Principal and Vice Principal at Oakleaf Junior High School. I then moved on to complete my first Principalship at Lakeside Junior High during the 2020/21 school year. I can not express how happy I am to now be returning home to the “Hive” as Principal.
My vision, as your school principal, is to provide leadership that will continue to facilitate a safe school environment that will foster high student achievement and success both academically and socially for all students. I am a firm believer that the key to achieving this vision is accomplished through a close partnership with faculty/staff members, parents/guardians and community stakeholders. Working together as a team, all things are possible.
Please know that my door is always open! I look forward to meeting everyone and working together as a team!
