My name is Ashley Jenkins. This is my 13th year of teaching at Webb A. Murray, and my 16th year of teaching all together. I have taught 1st, 4th, 5th and this is my 4th year teaching Kindergarten!! I grew up in Hickory and graduated from St. Stephens High School. I attended Appalachian State University and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education in 1998. I earned a Masters degree from Gardner Webb University in 2013.
My husband, Jeff, and I have been married for 21 years, and have three daughters, Bailey (20), who is a student at Appalachian State University, Rylie (16), who is a senior at St. Stephens High School & Avery (12) who is a 7th grader at Arndt Middle School. I love spending time with my family going to Appalachian State University football games (GO MOUNTAINEERS!), and taking trips to the beach and mountains.
