Ms. Carlye Proescholdt


My name is Carlye Proescholdt (pronounced PRESH-HOLT) and I am one of the Pre-K teachers at Obama. This will be my third year at Obama and I am thrilled to be here! I graduated from St. Olaf College with degrees in history and women's studies. I quickly realized teaching little people was my passion so I went back to school to pursue my master’s degree and teaching licenses (K-6 and Pre-Primary) from Concordia University in St. Paul.

I believe that positive early experiences at school set children up for a lifetime of success in education and in their lives, and I work to provide each and every scholar with high-quality school experiences during their year in Pre-K. My greatest hope is that your child feels loved and challenged at school and that they feel a sense of belonging with their school family. In Pre-K, we will work on early literacy and math skills in large and small groups, practice school routines, build friendships, and learn about the world around us through play and creative exploration!

When I’m not at school, you can find me exploring outside with friends and family—I love to kayak, hike, swim, camp, and go for walks. I also do Crossfit at a nearby gym. I have a dog named Ayla and we love to go on adventures together and cuddle on the couch reading or watching TV.

I am so honored to be your child’s teacher this year at Obama and I look forward to meeting each family as we work together to support your scholar and discover their unique gifts! Please feel free to reach out via email ( or phone (651.744.8376) if you’d like to connect with me. Thank you for sharing your child with me!!
