Hello! I am Miss Ashley White and I am thrilled to be teaching 2nd grade at VFE! Our year together is sure to be filled with tons of learning and fun!
Prior to becoming a teacher, I completed a 5 year dual BA/M.Ed. program at Lehigh University. In 2008, I earned my Bachelors in Psychology from Lehigh and graduated magna cum laude. A year later in 2009, I received my Masters in Education from Lehigh...and I have been teaching since then! I still enjoy cheering my alma mater on, and support current students as an active alumni. GO MOUNTAINHAWKS!
My learning did not end when I became a teacher however! In 2012, I earned and received my English as a Second Language Program Specialist (K-12) certificate from Wilkes University, and completed several post-graduate courses in literacy at the University of Pennsylvania in conjunction with the Penn Literacy Network. I have yet to decide what I would like study next, but am currently in the process of drawing inspiration from my wonderfully creative and bright students.
In my spare time I love to dance ballet, coach Special Olympics, and play with my doggies Kreacher & Washington. I love Starbucks and Target runs, the beach, summertime, and traveling. I am looking forward to a year filled with tons of fun and learning!
