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 toddler, named Eli! We also have a lab-mix dog, named Midnight. This will be my 4th 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 know that we will have a great year together!

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system.
