Chrisa Oakley named principal of Cox Elementary School
Northwest ISD trustees have approved Chrisa Oakley, current assistant principal of Justin Elementary School, as the next principal of Cox Elementary School.
Mrs. Oakley joined Northwest ISD in 2008 as a first-grade teacher at Roanoke Elementary School and later served as a campus instructional teacher and an intervention specialist. She has helped lead Justin Elementary School as an assistant principal since 2017.
“I am looking forward to building relationships with the Cox Elementary School community and building upon the success the school has already experienced,” Mrs. Oakley said.
Mrs. Oakley has a master’s of education degree in administration from Lamar University and a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Lubbock Christian University. She has specializations and certifications in reading recovery and coaching for results, as well as the National Institution of School Leadership.
She replaces Kim Becan, who was most recently named Northwest ISD’s executive director of elementary education. Mrs. Oakley will begin her transition into her new role this spring.
