Ms. Ashley Fisher
Hi! Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Ashley Fisher. I moved from Pennsylvania to North Carolina last year to begin teaching at Polenta Elementary. This will be my second year teaching Dual Language for First grade. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. I worked as a Pre-K Counts teacher for three years before teaching first grade. First grade is my dream job! I am eager and excited to meet the students this year and watch them grow!

We are asking for your input by completing an online interest survey.
