Tammi Oakley has been involved with the middle school since its opening in 2003 when her oldest son entered as a 6th grader. She spent three years volunteering at different events and started employment with James Irwin in August of 2006. Since then, both of her boys have graduated from the high school and moved into meaningful careers. She is one of the Instructional Coaches here at the middle school who spends most of her time training our new teachers, as well as continued support for veteran teachers. Through the years, she has attended many trainings which were focused on Direct Instruction delivery and classroom management strategies. She has a passion for our teachers, our school, our students, and all our families. When she is not in the classroom, she is hanging out with her family or spending time with friends. She loves hiking trails, relaxing by the water, and investing time in people.
