Principal's Message

    It is with great joy and anticipation that I accept the leadership position as Principal at Oakridge Elementary. The Moore School District is known for its high standards and academic excellence. It is a privilege to contribute to one of Oklahoma's most respected school districts and to the Oakridge community.  
    By way of introduction, I would like to share some of my educational and professional background with you and tell you a bit about myself:  I started Kindergarten at Northmoor Elementary and graduated from Moore High School.  After graduation, I attended the University of Oklahoma and earned a Bachelors of Science in Education.  I began my career 20 years ago as an elementary teacher at Broadmoore Elementary and taught third and sixth grade. After ten years of teaching, I returned to school at the University of Central Oklahoma, where I earned my Master's in Elementary Administration.  Following my Master's program, I served as an Assistant Principal for 5 years in three different Moore schools. I come to Oakridge after serving as Principal at South Lake Elementary and Plaza Towers Elementary.
    My educational background and personal experiences have helped shape my philosophy of education. I believe all students are capable of learning at the highest level possible.  Oakridge's educational system will provide students with the skills needed to be successful.  Your children’s achievements will be accomplished by providing a safe learning environment, high expectations, a clear vision of what is expected of them, and supporting students and their families to ensure they are reaching their social, physical, emotional and intellectual goals.
    I encourage you to become part of our community.  We will many opportunities for you to become an active member of the Sabercub community.  
    Amy Simpson, Principal Oakridge Elementary School
