Michele Murphy

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 sixth year teaching at Oakland Avenue Charter School and I love it!

A little about myself…I am married and have two children. My son is 12 years old and is a graduate of Oakland Avenue Charter School.  He is now moving on to 7th grade in middle school.  Oakland has been a part of our family since he was in Kindergarten!  My daughter just turned 10 and will be a fifth grader here at OACS. My family and I recently moved to Winter Garden.  We are happy to be closer to school.

Before raising my children, I taught Kindergarten for 6 years in Orange County.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Central Florida.  I am certified to teach Kindergarten through 6th grade. I have since earned an ESOL and ESE endorsement.  I have taught other grade levels, but teaching Kindergarten has become my true love and passion. Kindergarten is a time of enormous growth academically, physically and emotionally – it is remarkable!  I marvel in the joys and wonderment of childhood while I thrive to inspire and develop each child’s thirst for knowledge.
