Ms. Ashley Becker
Hi Fuquay Family! My name is Ashley Becker and I am so excited to be joining this community! This is my 8th year teaching. I have previously taught 4th grade in Durham, 5th grade & 3rd grade in Holly Springs at Holly Ridge Elementary. I am thrilled to be back in 4th where I began. Having taught 3rd & 5th, I am familiar with the knowledge students are coming to me with and where they need to be by the end of the year. 4th is such a great grade and we are going to have a fantastic, fun year!
A little bit about me... I grew up in Avon, NY (just outside of Rochester) and went to college in Syracuse at LeMoyne. I studied Psychology and Elementary Education, both regular and special ed. I moved south right after graduation because it really doesn't get any better than NC. After moving and teaching for 2 years, I received my Masters degree in Reading from Ball State University.
While working at Holly Ridge Elementary, I met my now husband who is also a teacher. We just got married on August 8th, 2018. For our wedding, we hiked Mt. Rainier in the National Park out in the state of Washington. Yes... I hiked in my wedding dress! Hopefully that tells you a lot about me. 😊 I love hiking and the great outdoors. We have no pets and no children so that allows us to travel this beautiful country of ours in the summers. We have visited 26 national parks and don't plan to stop anytime soon! We also recently built a home right here in Fuquay, so I am very excited to live in the community that I work! Hopefully you will see me around town and say hello!
This is my maiden name that has not been officially changed yet. It will be updated as soon as it is officially changed to Becker.
