Hello everyone! I am so excited to be back at Southwest. I feel like I am home. My name is Mandy Ashley and I have taught in Onslow County since 2013. I always had a long-term goal of being a school counselor, so here I am.
I am from the Maryland/Northern VA area. I have been in Onslow County since 2000, except for two years spent in California. I have children of my own that keep me busy and a grandchild. We also have three dogs and a rabbit. We love to spend time in the mountains (our favorite), at the beach, reading, playing games (phase ten is a family favorite), going to the park and just spending time together. We are always looking for fun things to do as a family.
I love to read when I have time. Coffee is my best friend. I love Dunkin Donuts. I love to watch crime shows.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education with a concentration in Behavioral Studies. I am currently enrolled at ECU obtaining my masters in School Counseling.
I have worked with children for over twenty years. I taught preschool for many years before becoming an elementary school teacher. I was a TA for the more at four program and I was a TA for kindergarten and fourth grade. I have taught 2nd and 3rd grade.
