Christopher R Oakes
Hello! I am so excited to be teaching at BOYCP this year, and I look forward to getting to know all of the students, staff, and members of the community. I have been part of CPS for 15 years and there is no greater reward than building lasting relationships with young people that support critical thinking and challenge the systemic injustices that we continue to see happening around us. Our students are the future and they will be responsible for shaping the world as we move forward during these unprecedented times.
I am thankful for the support of my family and you will hear me talk about them often. In my free time I play guitar and write music with friends, go fishing with my kids, and spend as much time outdoors as possible. There is nothing better than a warm fire, grilling out, and taking in the sounds of nature.
I am looking forward to a great year where we can use remote learning as an opportunity to prepare all of us for the next chapter in education, career development, and a rapidly growing technology-based society. This is a time for us to consider the possibilities, not just focus on the road blocks ahead.
Feel free to contact me at anytime with questions, concerns, or needed support ...
