I am so excited and honored to officially join the Jandrucko family as the new Dean of Instruction. Mansfield ISD has been my home for the past 12 years, allowing me the opportunity to teach first grade for seven years, serving as one of our elementary school of choice’s Assistant Principal, and being one of the district’s Early Literacy Instructional Specialists. My absolute favorite things about my job are seeing the kids experience learning in an engaging, hands-on way and empowering teachers in all the things they have to know and do intentionally to make our students feel loved and successful. There is no way I could be where I am without my mentors that push me and support from my friends and family. I have been married for 13 years to my best friend and we have a spunky one-and-a-half-year-old daughter and Pokémon loving seven-year-old son! I truly can’t wait to meet the newest extension of my family as we get a new batch of students.

Thank you for allowing me to be part of their journey. I hope it is the best experience that will shape their outlook on school.

Come say hello to Mrs. Oliver at Meet the Teacher on August 16th!
