Summer Principals Academy
The Education Leadership Program in the Department of Organization and Leadership
Kristina Dicks teaches English Language Development (ELD) at Webster Middle School that serves predominantly students of color, approximately a third of whom are English Language Learners (ELLs). She opened the school as a newcomer site in 2014 as both the ELD department chair and coordinator. Before entering the education field, Kristina served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica where she worked in rural community development. She aspires to open a dual language immersion school within the Oklahoma City Public School district to better serve ELLs while pulling in students who have opted out of public education.
