Hello and welcome to Otsego Elementary!
My name is Kelly Kudla. As a new Principal to ISD #728 and OES, I am excited to get to know more about this community! Before coming to Otsego Elementary, I spent seventeen years in the Robbinsdale Area Schools as an Assistant Principal, Administrative Intern, Behavior Specialist, Instructional Coach, and 5th grade teacher. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of WI-Madison, a Master of Arts in Education from Hamline University, and a Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership along with a K-12 Administrative License from Concordia University. Currently I am pursuing a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Concordia University. I am truly a lifelong learner!
Currently, I live in Maple Grove with my husband, two children, and dog. We spend a lot of time outdoors and watching sports, especially basketball and lacrosse. My favorite activities include reading, running, entertaining, trying new things, and going on little adventures with my family. And of course, I love being an educator!
Looking forward to a great year at Otsego Elementary!
