Dr. Calandra Davis
My name is Calandra Davis. I hold an Ed.D. in educational leadership from South Carolina State University. I
earned an Ed.S. in educational leadership from Appalachian State University. I also hold a M.Ed. in secondary school administration and a B.A. in English from Clemson University. I truly love serving as the principal of Jenkins Elementary School! Most recently, I served as a lecturer and clinical supervisor at Clemson University. Prior to returning to my alma mater as a lecturer, I served as a school administrator for 12 years in elementary, middle, and high schools. I was also an English language arts teacher for 6 years in grades 8 through 12.
I believe that administrators are not proficient until all of their teachers are proficient. In turn, teachers aren’t proficient until all of their students are proficient. That belief serves as a driving force behind my work as I truly want to help everyone I serve reach his or her full potential. Doing so aids my growth as leader.
I have two adult children, Aubrey, age 23, and Azsa, age 25. When I am not at school I enjoy gardening, completing home improvement projects, and spending time with my loved ones.

Mrs. Allison Johnson
Hi! I am Allison Johnson, the Assistant Principal at Oakwood Elementary and Jenkins Elementary. I am originally from Wilkes County in the foothills of NC. My family and I moved to Catawba County in 2016. I am married with two children, a boy and a girl who are 7 and 10 years old, and a mommy to a poodle named Jake. I enjoy spending time outdoors, cooking, reading, music, and being with my family.
I am in my 18th year in education during the 2018-2019 school year. I earned my Master’s in Elementary Education and School Administration from Appalachian State University. Prior to coming to Hickory Public Schools in 2015, I taught second, third, and fourth grade in Wilkes County. While in Hickory Public Schools, I have taught second grade, in addition to serving as Assistant Principal at Southwest Primary and Longview Elementary.
I am excited for the 2019-2020 school year. I believe that students learn best when students have high expectations, relationships with school staff, and know they are safe within the school. I am confident that all our students at Oakwood and Jenkins will have those essential components in their learning this school year.
