Dear Oxbow Parents, Guardians and Community, 

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Justine Greenleaf and I am honored and excited to be the Principal at Oxbow Elementary. This is my 14th year in the field of education. 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. Last year Oxbow celebrated 50 years of learning and we are committed to many, many more. 

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 4 year old son and we live in the Canton area. I am very excited about this school year and look forward to learning and growing within the Oxbow community. 

Educationally Yours, 

Justine Greenleaf
