Mrs. Grace "Sissy" Ashley

Hi!  I'm SO thrilled to be teamed up with the best of the best this year, Mr. Ashley!  I teach fourth and fifth grade ELA and Social Studies, and he teaches the math and science. We enjoy working together, and we strive to get the very best from EVERY SINGLE ONE of our students!!

After serving for three years as assistant principal here at LPES, it was a nice change to return to the class last year.  The best part about being your assistant principal was getting to work with everyone!!  I have always thought of LPES as my family, which means I now have over 500 kids!  The students at LPES are awesome, and I have enjoyed getting to know everyone and their families.  I've built some great relationships with so many of you while I was in administration, so feel free to say hi anytime! 😊

I love to read, and I love to watch LPES students read.  Nothing is better than a good book to get your emotions flowing and your brain thinking.  The first book that ever made me cry was Rick of High Ridge, a book my dad brought at a yard sale.  I encourage all families to go on a journey together through reading a book.  Simply sharing the love of literature can be the most bonding experience a family can have.  I look forward to witnessing my fifth grade students become bookworms, and I look forward to teaching all subjects in fifth grade this year!

I am also the mother of three AWESOME kids, two UF Gators and a UCF Knight!  I'm proud to say that two have already graduated and are already working "in the real world".  Sad to say that this means my oldest lives in Houston!  Mr. Ashley and I are adjusting to the "almost" empty nesting lifestyle. We love to take adventures, whether it involves travelling across country or going through a walk in the woods looking for a Geocache!  Enjoy your kids, and make the most of the time you spend together!😊❤️
