About Me

Kindergarten Parents,

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 and
wonderment 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!

Michele Murphy
