Meet Clayton Oakley-Robbins

Hello, MPS Indian Education Students and Families, 

Headshot of Clayton Oakley-Robbins

My name is Clayton John Oakley-Robbins. I am currently a paraprofessional at the Mashpee Middle High School, as well as the Indian Education Program Coordinator for the Mashpee Public Schools. I am a member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe and an alumnus of Mashpee High School's Class of 2012. I have traveled a path similar to many of

you in our Mashpee Public Schools. I was captain of the high school varsity lacrosse team, a member of the Key Club, and volunteered to coach the youth lacrosse program with other seniors. I was a recipient of the Bill & Melinda Gates Millennium Scholarship. After graduating from Mashpee High School, I graduated from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York in the spring of 2016, earning a bachelor's degree in sustainability studies.

With my degree and a summer of training from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, I came home and was the water quality technician for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe from 2016 until 2019 - helping to preserve our natural resources, propagate oysters, sweet grass, and pollinator gardens among various other projects. I have served as a tutor for the Tribe's Education Department, as the treasurer for the Mashpee Wampanoag Pow Wow, and as an active member of the Tribe's Community Emergency Response Team for the past four years, providing assistance during natural disasters and power outages.

I love our town and our community. I take immense pride in stepping up when opportunities arise. The opportunity to work and provide again for our community here at the high school has been no different. I am now in a role where I can connect students, families, and staff across all of the Mashpee Public Schools in an effort to provide greater opportunities to find success and to achieve goals. Being able to serve you in this tremendous capacity for years to come will bring me great joy. There is no place like Mashpee!
