Woolley has lived in District 1 for more than 10 years and is a licensed speech-language pathologist. She told the Tulsa World she ran for this seat because, "I believe in education as the great equalizer - a way in which all students can reach their fullest potential, becoming thriving members of society."
With three of her five children currently enrolled at Tulsa Public Schools, Woolley said she is very involved and passionate about working to provide "exceptional and free public education to all students regardless of demographics." She also said she wants to make sure all families in her district have a seat at the table. Woolley told the Tulsa World she intends to have "office hours" at various locations throughout the district so families can easily share their ideas, suggestions, and concerns.
Woolley was sworn in for a four-year term on Monday, April 8, 2019. Schools in District 1 include Wayman Tisdale Fine Arts Academy, Clinton West, Council Oak, Emerson, Eugene Field, Robertson, and Mark Twain elementary schools, as well as Webster Middle and Webster High School.
She replaces Gary Percefull who did not seek re-election after serving four consecutive terms.
We are excited to welcome Mrs. Woolley to the Tulsa Public Schools Board of Education!
