Welcome to Crooked Oak Public schools and thank you for visiting our web site.
What is a RUF-NEX? By definition a RUF-NEX exudes passion, hard work, and talent. In true RUF-NEX fashion, Crooked Oak Schools is exceptional because of its people. The teachers, staff, and alumni are some of the most talented and compassionate people in the teaching industry. Our staff is dedicated to fostering the best in students and seeing that they are nurtured while in our care.
As I am nearing my 20th year in education, I am reminiscent of why I wanted to be a teacher: I could make a difference as my teachers did for me. I have served as high school English teacher, bus driver, alternative education teacher, assistant principal, principal, and superintendent. Although my titles have changed through the years, my mission of making a positive difference for kids has remained the same. I am approaching my 6th year serving as Superintendent of Crooked Oak School. Early in my tenure, I developed a simple plan to improve Crooked Oak Schools. I am still committed to the underlying principles of that plan. Our plan focuses on 5 parts:
Crooked Oak has yet to achieve its goals but we are working hard to be the top school in Oklahoma. Go RUF-NEX!
