Thankful for…


In just two weeks it will be Thanksgiving, a time when we often begin to reflect on who and what we are most thankful for in our lives. Here is what Oakland Schools Cabinet as well as Board of Education members said they are most grateful for this holiday season:

“I am thankful for each and every member of our team who clearly demonstrates their passion, skill and leadership on a daily basis, ensuring the success of our organization’s mission to foster learning for all educators and students.”
-Tammy Evans, assistant superintendent of Shared Services & Chief Information Officer

“I am thankful for good health, great friendships, lots of laughter and long weekends.”
 -Dandridge Floyd, assistant superintendent of Human Resources and Labor Relations

“I am thankful to be working in an organization, which is full of such talented professionals who are dedicated to improving education in Oakland County.”
Bob Moore, deputy superintendent of Finance & Operations

“I am thankful for the public education system that educates all children that walk into our schools. We have tremendous local school districts providing wonderful educational opportunities for children. I am thankful for having had the opportunity to serve on both a local school board (Berkley) and the Oakland Schools Board to be able to make sure that our public schools continue to provide great opportunities for all children.”
-Marc D. Katz, vice president of Oakland Schools Board of Education.

I am most thankful for my family and the people I get to work with at Oakland Schools.
Michael Yocum, assistant superintendent of Educational Services
