Carole Kelly

My name is Carole Kelly and I just moved here from Boca Raton, Florida. So far, I am loving the area and the people I have met! This will be my first year at Oakland and I am looking forward to joining this amazing family.

Prior to graduating college, I worked with two and three-year olds at a preschool in Wellington, Florida. This is where my passion for working with the little kiddos began. I graduated FAU with my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. This is my sixth-year teaching (one year in 3rd grade and 4 years in kindergarten). I am ESOL endorsed and will soon begin my Reading endorsement.

I am married with two children, a 4-year-old girl and a 5-month-old baby boy. My 4-year-old will be joining me at Oakland in the VPK program. She is ecstatic to be at school with Mommy. I love spending free time at home with my family. We are usually outside with bubbles, chalk and some fun music. We have family close by and are excited to begin this new chapter of our lives.
