Meet our Principal

Principal Bailey

Hello Oakwood Family!


It is an honor to be appointed as the principal of Oakwood Elementary.  I look forward to serving this community, loving the Oakwood students and staff, and ultimately seeing our Owls SOAR!


I was born and raised in Logan, Utah.  I am the youngest of 3 children.  I am a third-generation educator as my grandparents, parents, and now myself have served in education.  My grandfather became an elementary school teacher and later a principal following his service in World War II.  My wife and I have 2 wonderful children, Jason (entering 1st grade) and Olivia (entering pre-school).

I began serving in the Granite School District in 2010 at Bonneville Junior High where I taught Spanish, Social Studies, and ESL.  I loved being a Viking!  I have served as a school administrator at both Matheson Junior High and most recently Hunter High School.


I am a proud Utah State Aggie and all around sports fan!  I enjoy watching movies, college football, YouTube videos, learning about historical events, and doing yard work.  If I could be anyone in life, I would choose to be Captain America.


Something that not many people know about me is that while growing up, I struggled with reading a lot.  I couldn’t say the big words or remember what I read.  Most my friends were advanced readers and I became shy to read in front of others.  Over time, with some practice and the support of loving individuals, I have come to love reading.  I look forward to discussing books with the Oakwood students.
