Claire Ashley

My name is Claire Ashley and I will be your child's second grade teacher this year.  I completed my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education in 1997 and began teaching Title I at Oglethorpe Avenue in Clarke County August 1998.  After teaching for two years, I went back to school to pursue a Master’s in Early Childhood Education and went to Barrow County to teach 1st grade at Yargo Elementary School.  I taught there for two years, started my Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction, and wanted to be closer to home, so I came to RBES to teach 4th grade.

Math became a focus of professional development at Rocky Branch, so I added a math endorsement to my certificate in 2006.  Completing my gifted endorsement Spring 2015 has helped ensure that I meet the students’ needs by providing enrichment exercises.  I have experience teaching all grades kindergarten - fifth.  Prior to my first year of teaching, I was a long-term sub in a 3rd grade classroom for the last half of the school year.  I am very excited about the opportunity to teach second grade this year at RBES.


Family:  Husband, Kevin   Son, Harper   Daughter, Meg 


Hobbies:  reading, jogging, outdoor activities, shopping, attending Georgia football/basketball games, and spending time with family and friends


I am looking forward to working with your child and watching him/her grow throughout this year in second grade.  I feel very blessed and honored to have the opportunity to teach your child.  Welcome to my class!
