Hello everyone! Welcome to Oakridge Elementary School!
My name is Jamodd Jenkins and I will be one of your Assistant Principals at OES. I was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. I graduated from Winthrop University in 2019 with a degree in Middle-Level Education with a concentration in mathematics and science. I started my career in education at Oakridge Middle School, where I taught 7th-grade math from 2019-2023. I received my MA in Educational Leadership from Queens University of Charlotte in 2022.
At OES, we strive to create a safe and productive environment, so that each student who walks through our hallways is successful in an ever-changing world. With the help of our talented and highly qualified teachers and staff, we continue to meet the academic, intellectual, and social needs of each of our students so that they can reach their full potential. Through the South Carolina College and Career Readiness Standards, our teachers provide meaningful, rigorous, and lively lessons for our students. This allows students to become life-long learners as they navigate through the curriculum and the world.
I look forward to a productive school year together! Students, I cannot wait to meet and get to know you and all of your amazing talents. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year if you have any questions or concerns.
Go Blue Eagles!
