Oakdale K-8 School

8th Grade

Mrs. Kranz


My name is Amber Kranz and this is my 4th year teaching at Oakdale.  I teach 8th grade Physical Science, and Environmental Science.  I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Biology.  I love science and really love teaching it.  I spend many of my weekends in Berkeley watching the Cal bears play, football, basketball, or whatever else my sports obsessed husband wants to watch.  I look forward to another great year at Oakdale.

Mrs. Durham


I have been teaching for 4 years.  I became a teacher after serving in the military (Army), because I  wanted to work in a field where I could continue to lead, motivate and share my passion for health and fitness, especially within our youth community. When I am not at work I love to weight train at my gym and workout, I also love to spend time with my dogs.

This is my 4th year at Oakdale. This year I am proud to be the 7/8 ELA teacher, Yearbook Advisor, Activities Director (sports), and Webmaster. I am looking forward to all of the amazing things that will be happening at Oakdale this year.
