Ms. Rackley

Greetings Oxmoor Valley Elementary Family,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! My name is Ms. Rackley and I am excited to serve the Oxmoor Valley community as the Alabama Reading Initiative Reading (ARI) Specialist.  My job as an ARI Specialist is to build relationships with (K-3) teachers by supporting them through collaborative coaching partnerships. I model effective science of reading instruction for teachers that is explicit, systematic and inclusive of detailed explanation. It's a pleasure to work side by side with teachers to successfully implement lessons so that all students are reading on or above grade level by third grade.

I am passionate about the academic and social/emotional well-being of our students and believe that positive relationships provide the foundation for success. I believe each student deserves a high-quality, engaging and relevant educational experience that meets their individual needs and inspires innovation. I am looking forward to continuing working closely with staff, students, families and the community of Oxmoor as we continue to move from Good to Great.

I look forward to getting to know you and your family at OVE throughout the year! There are opportunities for you to participate at our school as we continue to promote a Love of Reading throughout the school year, so please be sure to find out how you can help when you stop by the school. In addition, please feel welcome to contact me with any questions, ideas or feedback via email at or by phone at (205) 231-1200.

Warmest Regards,


ARI Reading Specialist
