• My name is Karen Brendle.  I am excited to be a member of the amazing Oak Ridge Elementary School family.  It is wonderful to be a part of the community that knows that ALL children can DREAM, BELIEVE and ACHIEVE.  You have been your child’s teacher for the past 5 years.  I am excited to be partnering with you to make your child’s kindergarten experience welcoming.  I have taught 4th grade and Kindergarten here at Oak Ridge.  I am married to David and we have 3 wonderful children that also attended Oak Ridge Elementary.  Thank you for sharing your child with me and I look forward to working with you to make this a great year!
