How many years have you worked at Oak Grove?

Since 2015.

Why do you work at Oak Grove?

I was immediately drawn to Oak Grove because of its belief in building a student’s relationship with nature. I am also appreciative to work for a community that provides a safe environment for students to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.
