Mrs. Ilse Cardelle
Prior to joining Doral Academy as an English teacher this year, Mrs. Cardelle had a variety of teaching experience in diverse places. She began as an English and Journalism teacher at Miami Senior High School in 1990, but then took time off to raise her seven children and homeschool some of them. In 1999, she and her family moved to North Carolina, where she taught Middle School and High School Spanish, ESOL, and Reading/Writing at a Catholic school and later, at a public school there. She also taught for many summers at the Miami Museum of Science Summer camp; everything from Marine Biology to Art to preschool. Mrs. Cardelle is a people person who loves children, reading, learning about new things, history, and the beach. She is looking forward to moving back to Miami after 19 years away, and working at such an excellent school.
