Mrs. Cara Kelley

Welcome to Freedom Elementary!  

Hello! My name is Mrs. Kelley.  I am so happy you are here! This will by my 6th year in the Waynesville R-VI School District. I have taught both Kindergarten and First Grade. 
I am married to my husband John, who also works in the district. Go Tigers! We have a vibrant 5-year-old daughter, Adelyn, and a sweet dog named Fitzgerald. In my spare time, I love to read, go for a run with my dog or take the occasional trip to Target. 
Kindergarten is full of so many new and exciting experiences. I cannot wait to go on this journey with you and your student this school year. 
"Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be." -Rita Pierson
