JOINED OXFORD COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
Welcome to Daniel Axford Elementary School!
joined the Oxford Community Schools staff in 2004. I spent most of my
career teaching second grade, but have also taught third and fourth
grades. I became the principal of Daniel Axford Elementary in 2013.
Over the years, I have learned that Daniel Axford Elementary is a school committed to creating lifelong inquirers who are
caring, contributing members of a global society. It will be my mission
to continue to support a school community that is exciting and engaging
for students while maintaining a safe, rigorous environment where
students can learn and grow. I have a true passion for education and set
high expectations for all students and staff. I truly appreciate the
support parents and community members provide.
My family and I have lived in Oxford since 2001. All three of my daughters (Carly, Ella, and Maddy) are Oxford Schools students, and my wife Kris is a teacher at Clear Lake Elementary. So we are clearly a family of Wildcats!
am looking forward to serving you as your building principal. Please
feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns. Together we
can ensure that you and your child have a successful experience at
Daniel Axford Elementary. Go Wildcats!
