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 fifth 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 11 years old and is a recent graduate of Oakland Avenue Charter School.He is now moving on to middle school.Oakland has been a part of our family since he was in Kindergarten!My daughter just turned 9 and will be a Fourth 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.
I look forward to being a part of your family this school year.Together, we will inspire your child to be a lifelong learner. I can’t wait to see what the future holds this school year!
