Hello, my name is Ashley Roach. I am the 4th grade Reading & Writing teacher. This is my 2nd year as a teacher here at Loogootee Elementary and I could not be more excited about it! Prior to this year, I was the Preschool teacher.
Before finding my "HOME" here at Loogootee Community School Corportation, I taught in the 1st and 5th grades in the general education setting as well as the 3rd/4th grade as a Special Education Teacher. I graduated from Vincennes University with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and Mild Interventions. Being a teacher has always been a dream and passion of mine. There is no greater feeling than seeing the "light" go on for the first time when a child learns a new skill.
My husband's name is Devon and we have been together for 11 years married for 8 . We have 3 rambuctious, happy little boys who love any and all things outdoors. Wyatt is 7 and in 1st grade here at LES, Zayne is 3.5 and Caleb is 18 months. In our free time as a family we enjoy being outside, camping, playing board games, reading books together and taking trips to adventourous places such as the zoo and museums. I also enjoy cooking/baking and getting lost in a good book!
I feel beyond blessed to be one of your child's teachers and help develop/continue their love for reading and writing. I love to incorpoate as much "hands on learning" and technology as I can. I also LOVE to be silly and have FUN and show the kiddos it's okay to be themselves. I can't wait to spend the year with your learner. Please feel free to contact me any time you have any questions or concerns.
