Hello My Name Is...
My name is Ashley Jones and I am so excited to be sharing this year with your child and your family. I feel that the early years of school is a shared experience for the whole family. It takes a group effort to create a positive learning experience. Therefore, I believe communication is a strong aspect in your child's schooling. Please feel free to contact me anytime you need anything.
I would like to take this time to introduce myself. I am married to my best friend who is also a school teacher. We have a beautiful six month old baby girl, Zoey Kate who completes our family.
Contact Me: If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at 704-932-8121 or email me and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience. I will check my voice mail and email before and after school. If there is an emergency please notify the office.
College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
I grew up in Greensboro, NC and attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and completed a degree in Special Education with a concentration in Learning Disabilities. I completed my student teaching at Colfax Elementary in Colfax, NC and continued on to complete my Graduate degree in Special Education with a concentration in Learning Disabilities before establishing my full time teaching career. I moved to Third Creek Elementary in Statesville, NC where I taught for one year in a resource setting before teaching a Self Contained Autistic Classroom for Kindergarten and First Grade for three years. This is my third year at Forest Park Elementary teaching in the Self Contained Cross Categorical Classroom. I believe that kindergarten, first, and second grade are the most crucial years in a child's schooling. It is the foundation in which the rest of the schooling is based. Therefore, we want to make this year one that is positive, fun, but still challenging for your child.
I strive to create a positive learning experience for all students. I hope to reach each student in a way that will impact the rest of their lives. I want my classroom to be a safe place for students to share their ideas, problems, and dreams.
