Oklahoma City, OK—The Oklahoma Public School Resource Center (OPSRC) has named Carole Kelley as its new director of teaching and learning. She will join the nonprofit organization in August and will be responsible for providing partner schools a range of instructional tools, strategies, and professional development to address their individual needs.
Kelley has more than twenty-five years of educational experience, most recently as president and chief executive officer of E.D. Consortium, an educational consulting firm that provides professional development, strategies and advice to both Washington, D.C. charter schools and Oklahoma City inner-city turnaround schools.
Before that, she was integral in the founding and continued success of Harding Charter Preparatory High School in Oklahoma City as both director of student development and later, head of school. She also worked in Putnam City Schools as a teacher and curriculum leader.
“We are extremely pleased to be adding Carole to our team, and I know her years of experience in various disciplines will provide our partner schools a wealth of knowledge and expert guidance in creating and sustaining engaging and successful learning environments,” said OPSRC Executive Director Brent Bushey.
In my mind, this time of the year always brings some reflection. As you wind down and then start a fresh calendar year, there are always items you find you will never repeat as well as those you want to introduce.

How will you have some of those tough conversations? How will they sound?
When I was little, my dad spent time working at McDonnell Douglas in Tulsa. If I remember right, he worked on a lot of different things, but what always excited me the most was that he worked on the engine for the F-15 Eagle fighter jet.
