Welcome to Rocky River Elementary School from Mrs. Ashby. I came to Cabarrus County in January 2005 after graduating from Elon University with a degree in Math Education and Sports Medicine. This is my third year as a 5th Grade Science and Social Studies teacher at Rocky River. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. While we have been at home since March we have spent lots of time playing in our yard and doing things together. One of our projects was to turn a shipping pallet into an American flag. My husband has started keeping bees and harvested honey at the beginning of August. We also have 10 chickens that we got when they were 3 weeks old. We have all enjoyed watching them grow and are looking forward to the eggs they provide for us. We have played lots of card games with Rook and Rummy being two of our favorites.
I am very excited to get to explore and experience 5th grade with each and every student this year! Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns about your student's progress. Student work can be found in Canvas. We will be using Microsoft Teams for our live online learning. I will be using Class Dojo to communicate regularly with families. Families are also welcome to contact me through my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to a great year!
