My name is Ashley James. I have been teaching seventh grade English at Williams Middle School for 2 years, this will be my third. I live in Florence with my husband, daughter, four cats, and three dogs. I enjoy reading, exercising, and playing video games.
I graduated in 2015 and 2016 from Francis Marion University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I furthered my educational career at Grand Canyon University and graduated with my Master of Arts in English in 2020.
As an educator, I strive to build a classroom that is welcoming and encourages active learning, including making mistakes. My goal this year to help students better understand reading and writing both literary and informational texts, with the ultimate goal being to build students' confidence in their abilities as readers and writers. I hope to work closely with parents to keep them in the loop and build a strong community between myself, the students, and their parents to help every student leave my class having had the best experience possible.
