Hello! My name is Ashley Leejay, and I am so thrilled to have the privilege of being your child’s teacher this school year. I was raised in Dallas, Texas, and attended University of North Texas in Denton. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and my certification is Early Childhood through 6th with ESL (English as a Second Language).
As the school year begins, I look forward to the challenges and rewards this year will bring. My classroom goal is for there to be teaching and learning so that each child has the ability to achieve his/her level of academic success. I hope to accomplish this through interactive and memorable lessons that encompass the growth mindset. Our class will be a safe, nurturing, fun place for learning.
I realize that each child is different and requires specific attention. For this reason, it is extremely important that we establish a partnership in your child’s education. It is also important that you and your child be informed of our standards for classroom behavior so everyone knows what is expected. Please feel free to phone, email, or text to schedule a parent-teacher conference any time you have a question concerning your child's academic progress and/or behavior.
