Ms. Ashley McMichael
Hello, my name is Ashley McMichael, and I am thrilled to be your child's fourth grade teacher this year! I graduated magna cum laude from Rowan University with BA's in Elementary Education, Writing Arts, and American Studies. I am currently a graduate student at Rowan University where I study Reading. Ballet is a huge passion in my life, and I have been dancing since I could walk. Traveling the world dancing ballet in my early adulthood opened my eyes and gave me so many wonderful travel experiences that I am thrilled to be able to share with your children.
In room 14 at Denbo Elementary School, I strive for a fun learning enviornment. I feel that children learn best with hands-on activities, so I love to get them up and out of their seats as much as possible. We reinact stories, use hand motions for all reading strategies, and eager students come to the front of the class to be the "student teacher" when they know how to complete a math problem so well that they are able to teach it. Students constantly stand at the front of the room working on their public speaking skills when sharing their writing pieces.
An open line of communication between families and myself is crucial. Please never hesitate to email me: email@example.com
A great way to follow along with our classroom, see pictures, updates, track daily student behavior, and contact me is through our ClassDojo. Email me to find out how to get connected!
