Carissa Wooden

Send Email

Carissa loves to teach and provide for the children of this community. As Director of PUMC's Kids Connection (Out of School) Program, Carissa is responsible for all aspects of this program that provides care, academic support, and supervision for Plainfield students grades K-5 before and after school during the school year and all day during school breaks. Carissa works with a caring staff to provide fun and safe activities, tutoring and homework help, healthy snacks, as well as field trips and learning enrichment experiences.

After receiving her Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2005 and working many years in the public-school system, Carissa found “her home” working at PUMC as a Pre-K teacher in 2013. She became the Director of Kids Connection in May of 2017 while continuing to teach Pre-K.

Not only does Carissa have a passion for teaching she also has two children of her own.  Cash and Laya both attend Van Buren Elementary, the same school she and her husband, Brandon Wooden, attended.  Brandon has worked as a HVAC tech for Vasey Commercial heating and air for 20 years. Brandon and Carissa were both born and raised in Plainfield and enjoy raising and coaching their own children in many sports right here in the community.

Working with children has always been Carissa's call and she loves to watch them grow academically and spiritually. She feels great comfort in knowing that parents put their trust in her to provide care and education for their children here at PUMC.
