Mrs. Ashley Schiess
I was born and raised in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. I attended North Carolina State University and graduated with honors from their College of Education with a degree in Elementary Education and a STEM concentration. I love to bring global aspects from my travels into the classroom. I am married and have an adventurous preschooler, named Eli! We also have a lab-mix dog, named Midnight. This will be my 5th year teaching 3rd grade at ECES! Go Explorers! I love to bring students' interests into the classroom and find ways to make learning fun! I earned my National Board Teaching Certification in Early/Middle Childhood Literacy in 2020. I know that we will have a great year together!
