Mrs. Erica Gruber

I am honored and excited to serve as the principal of Oakley. This year marks my 15th year in education. My experience includes elementary teacher, instructional coach, district coordinator, and assistant principal. 

Together with the wonderful staff, I look forward to nourishing a safe and positive culture of learners who have the ability to persevere through even their toughest challenges to find success. 
 
I believe in making decisions based on the academic, social and emotional needs of the children we serve. 
 
I encourage and welcome parents and community to participate in the learning adventure with the children. If you have any questions, please contact me. I look forward to working with you this year.

I am excited to join the Oakley family and honored to serve as your Assistant Principal. I have 16 years of experience in K-12 education. Previously, I have taught at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. I served in many leadership roles including Instructional Coach, District Curriculum Coordinator, and Campus Testing Coordinator.

I grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and attended Immaculata University. After relocating to Texas in 2003, I earned my master’s degree in Educational Administration from Lamar University.  I am currently preparing to defend my dissertation for my doctorate in education at Texas A&M.

I believe a collaborative school environment encourages success. I feel strong relationships with students, parents, staff, and community partners are essential to enriching the experience at Oakley Elementary.

Mrs. Chandra Torres

Welcome to Oakley Elementary! My name is Chandra Torres. I am a proud mom of two energetic toddlers and a step-mom to an equally energetic 7th grader. I grew up in the Rio Grande Valley. Shortly after high school, I moved to Beaumont where I completed my Bachelor’s Degree at Lamar University.

The 2019-2020 school year will be my first year to support the staff, students, and families of Oakley Elementary as an Assistant Principal. This year will also mark my 20th year in education.

Prior to coming to Oakley, I had the pleasure of serving as an Assistant Principal at Sorters Mill Elementary. Before joining New Caney ISD as an Assistant Principal at SME, I supported campuses for over seven years in the Humble school district as a facilitator of the Bilingual program and then the Director of Bilingual/ESL and Foreign Languages Programs. Before serving in central office, my first ten years of experience in education provided me with the opportunity to teach in general education classrooms as well as bilingual and ESL classrooms across all elementary grade levels.

I believe that as educators, it is our moral obligation to provide students with many opportunities for them to discover their potential and DREAM BIG! At Oakley Elementary, we are supporting students in their journey to the stars!

I am thrilled to be a part of the Oakley family and look forward to a fantastic 2019-2020 school year!
