NORMAN — Former Monroe Elementary School principal Gracie Branch is the Oklahoma Association of Elementary School Principals’ new executive director.

Branch will be responsible for professional development for Oklahoma’s elementary administrators. She also will provide support to elementary school administrators through site visits, regional and national conferences and with state and national legislative advocacy.

The elementary principals’ association is a branch of the Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration. Steven Crawford, the council’s executive director, announced Branch’s appointment on Thursday.

“Dr. Gracie Branch possesses the ethics and professionalism requisite of any accomplished school administrator,” he said. “Her style of servant leadership will be an excellent example for all of Oklahoma’s elementary school principals.”

Branch was Monroe’s principal for the past six years. She also had taught in Norman for 20 years and Little Axe for two years, was an assistant principal in the Putnam City School District and coordinator for National Board Certification in Oklahoma.

“I am excited to be working closely with school principals from across the state to achieve high professional standards and best practices for Oklahoma schools,” Branch stated in the release. “I feel my 32 years in education serve as a solid foundation to carry out the responsibilities of a CCOSA administrator.”
