It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself to you. I am Ms. Stacey D. Hughes, Assistant Principal at Oak Forest Elementary School. This will be my second year here (over twenty plus years as an educator) and I am honored to be working with a fabulous staff. We as a collaborative team have a tremendous responsibility ahead of us, however; working together we will accomplish our goals of educating our precious students. I believe that the foundation of our future accomplishments will be found in the power of our combined efforts and the strength of our synergy. Working together we will create a collaborative school environment and culture to ensure that all students are successful. We know that change can provoke both excitement and anxiety in us all, yet; we can do this together. As we embark on this “New Journey” of educating children, let us do our part with the spirit of “YES WE CAN”. We have a tremendous job to do and it takes a team effort to fulfill the many tasks that must be done to ensure the success of all of our students. Working together we will have an awesome year to successfully drive instruction that will yield outstanding results. Educationally yours, Ms. Stacey D. Hughes
