Ashley Pethel

Hello! My name is Ashley Pethel. I have been teaching for Cabarrus County Schools since January 2005. I am married to my amazing husband, Matt Pethel, and have two wonderful children, Brandon and Leah. They are my pride and joy! Education is a lifelong passion of mine and I hope to inspire you in your educational journey. I am so excited for the new school year at Cabarrus Virtual Academy. I am cannot wait to meet you face to face (in this virtual world) and look forward to working alongside you this semester.
I will be using the online learning management system called Canvas for my courses this year.  Please visit my Canvas page by clicking on the Canvas icon on the school's website to access all course information.  You will need an account and access code (available for both students and parents).  Please email me at for the course access code. 
I will not be using the Canvas grade book feature, due to all quizzes/assessments are partially multiple-choice (on-line) and constructed response (in-class).  Student grades can be viewed using the PowerSchool parent portal which is updated weekly. I also encourage registering as a Canvas observer to assist in monitoring student progress. Please refer to the links to the left of this page for information on access to important resources.
