Mrs. Cara Kelley

Welcome to Freedom Elementary!  

Hello! My name is Mrs. Kelley.  I am so happy you are here! This will be my 8th 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 6-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 such a special year for your child's educational journey! Your student will be encouraged, supported and held to high expectations to reach his/her fullest potential. I cannot wait to go on this adventure with you and your student this school year. I truly believe in the power of communication and working together to ensure a positive school experience. Please contact me at anytime should you have any questions or concerns. Email:
