Welcome to Oakland Avenue Charter School! Whether you’ve been a part of our family in the past, or you are new to it, I am happy you’re here! My name is Michele Murphy. I am pleased to introduce myself as your child’s teacher this school year. This will be my fourth year teaching at Oakland and I love it!
A little about myself…I have two children of my own. My son is 10 years old and has been a student here for five years. He is now moving on to be a Fifth Grader. My daughter just turned 8 and will be a Third Grader here at OACS as well. We just recently moved to Winter Garden which is closer to the school for us.
Before raising my children, I was a Kindergarten teacher for 6 years in Orange County. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Central Florida. I truly enjoy being a part of a child’s educational journey. I marvel in the joys andwonderment of childhood. I thrive to inspire and develop each child’s thirst for knowledge. Kindergarten is a time of enormous growth academically, physically and emotionally.
I look forward to being a part of your lives this school year. Together, we can help inspire your child to be a lifelong learner. I can’t wait to see what the future holds this school year!
