Mr. David Gaudet

I am beyond excited to join the Oakview community on September 21st!  Dr. Robinson, Area Superintendent, and I have discussed the unique timing of my appointment and how I can best support Oakview families during this challenging time. We are both confident that together with the continued support of parents and staff, we will be able to sustain the positive energy and momentum that makes this school such a wonderful place to work and learn.

I am committed to supporting students, staff, and families to make this transition as seamless as possible. My leadership experience as principal at Oberlin Magnet Middle school and assistant principal at Davis Drive Middle School has afforded me many amazing leadership opportunities including working with staff and community to rename and rebrand a school, strengthening school culture to reduce teacher turnover, growing a positive school culture to increase student enrollment, and garnering community support to promote a greater sense of identity and school pride. I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be part of WCPSS (this is my 15th year) and I am excited about the opportunity to serve the Oakview community. 

If you have questions or concerns, I encourage you to reach out to me when I begin on Monday, September 21. My WCPSS email is Thank you for your support of Oakview Elementary School!
