Ms. Ashley Otero

Hello!!! My name is Ashley Otero.This is my first year at Carolina Forest and I am excited to be an Eagle teacher as well as an Eagle parent.  I am a proud military spouse of 15 years to an incredible, loving man and have 2 kids, one daughter named Annabelle (in 8th grade this year), and a son named Cash (in 5th grade this year). When my children were younger I stayed home to devote time to them, start a photography business and get involved with local non-profits.  I have a background in Early Childhood Education and Development and have worked in classrooms as a lead and an assistant. I have a passion for education and have worked in both traditional classroom settings and Montessori classrooms. I have also done extensive training in preschool administration and acted as a Compliance Coordinator, Enrollment & Admissions Manager and an Administrative Assistant for a local private school. In my spare time I enjoy camping, spending time with my family and friends, watching movies with my family and game nights! I look forward to an amazing year and meeting lots of incredible kids, parents and teachers. GO EAGLES!!
