Dear Oxbow Parents, Guardians and Community,
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! My name is Justine Greenleaf and I am honored and excited to be the Principal at Oxbow Elementary. This is my 16th year in the field of education and my 3rd year at Oxbow Elementary. I hold a Masters in Educational Leadership from Marygrove College and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Michigan-Dearborn, where I also played volleyball. Go Blue! Throughout my educational experience I have had an opportunity to work as an elementary classroom teacher, elementary Curriculum Coordinator, Assistant Principal and Principal. My experiences have included working in a variety of diverse buildings, cultures and communities. Most recently my family and I relocated back to Michigan from the metro Atlanta area, in which I worked in a K-8 building.
Our passionate Oxbow staff values building family partnerships and relationships within our community. We also strive to provide a safe, loving and conducive learning environment for our students, by building a culture of high expectations. We are a team of dedicated educators that are passionate about the students and community that we serve.
A few fun things about me, I speak a second language, I love to workout, travel abroad, drink iced coffee and go to Disney World. My husband and I have a 6 year old son that also attends Oxbow Elementary and we live in the Canton community. I am very excited about this school year and look forward to learning and growing within the Oxbow community.
