Dear Oak Grove Families,
It is with great pleasure that I write this as the new Principal at Oak Grove Elementary. I have had the privilege of being an educator for 20 years. For the past 12 years I have served as the Principal at Carroll Bell Elementary in Harlandale ISD. It is truly an honor to become part of the Oak Grove family and community. When I am away from my school family, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two amazing daughters. They will start second and fourth grades next school year and they are both in the dual language program. We enjoy traveling, reading, and going to the movies.
I am committed to promoting a safe, meaningful, and engaging educational experience for our students. I believe that all students have unique strengths and potential, and that it is our job as educators to tap into these strengths. It is my belief that every student deserves a quality education and that best occurs when schools, families, and community work together to address and meet the social, emotional, and academic needs of each student. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. I am truly humbled to be given this opportunity and look forward to meeting all of you and continuing to build on the excellence of Oak Grove. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
Sincerely, Taleen Bloom
Principal Oak Grove Elementary
