Hello, my name is Troy Hayes. It is a gift to be joining the Oak Grove community as Principal for the 2014-15 school year. I am entering my 10th year with Burton School District and have served in education for a total of 17 years. My experience includes 10 years as an elementary teacher. Over the past 5 years I have had the blessing of leading in a Vice Principal role at Burton Elementary, Summit Charter Academy, Summit Charter Collegiate Academy, and for the past two years as Principal of Burton Pathways.

I am a 1990 graduate of Lindsay High School. I earned my BA Degree in Communications from Cal State University Fullerton, and later completed my Teaching Credential from CSU Bakersfield. Eventually I went to on to obtain a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of La Verne.

For the past 10 years I have been married to my wife Jeannie, who owns a karaoke business in Porterville. We have a 19 year old daughter who loves photography and is currently attending community college. I am a huge sports fan, and have been known to win a few fantasy football leagues.

I look forward to an outstanding year! Go Stars!

I am privileged to be the Vice Principal at Oak Grove Elementary School. I was raised in Porterville and attended Roche Avenue School, Bartlett Middle School, and Monache High School.  I attended Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego where I received my degree in Child Development, as well as my teaching credential and Masters in Educational Leadership.   I began my teaching career in 2004, and since then I have taught grades 1, 2, and 6 in the Burton School District.  I live in Porterville with my wonderful husband, and my 3 children, who have all attended Burton schools. 

I believe Oak Grove is an exceptional school for many reasons, but mostly because of the culture of love and respect among the staff and students.  Centered on Capturing Kids’ Hearts, we believe that relationships are foundational for learning to happen, so we take time each and every day to explore the needs of our students.  Using the EXCEL model, we Engage them every morning with a handshake, we Explore their stories by sharing Good Things, we Communicate with them through engaging and rigorous lessons, we Empower them to take what they learn and apply it, and we Launch them to go out into the world do make it a better place. 

Our new motto is:

“The brightest STARS are those who shine bright for the benefit of others. “


We will work every day to prepare students for a bright future where they will change the lives of others through their words and actions. 

Goooo Stars!

Welcome Star parents and visitors! My name is Mr. Marquez.  It is my core belief that every child can achieve academic goals to their highest potential when supported by a community of teachers, administrators, and family members.

My background in education stems from my undergraduate years at UCLA where I have worked as a teacher’s assistant and a youth mentor. I received my teaching credential from Fresno Pacific University. Thereafter I taught for two years at Dailey Charter Elementary IB World School in Fresno, Ca. My professional development opportunities have equipped me with a wealth of knowledge and strategies that will surely infuse my classroom environment with a fervor and desire for learning.
 
I look forward to serving our school and the Porterville community. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
