About Me

My name is Ms. Karen Colon.  Although this is my first year at Oakland Avenue Charter School, this will be my 14th year teaching elementary school. I am certified PreK-6th grade, ESOL, and Birth-Age 3. I earned my teaching degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Central Florida. I have taught both in both public and private school in Florida in all grades K-5.

I live in Clermont, Florida. I have 4 children, ages 23, 17, 15, and 11. I am a football and cheer mom and I love to be at the football field! I also love Clermont, Oakland, and Winter Garden and you never know when you might find me strolling the downtown streets enjoying small town life.  As a busy, working mom, I don't get much free time, but when I do I love to go to Disney and the beach, read Amish novels, watch movies, shop, and travel.  I also love anything crafty and home decorating.
