Hello! My name is Ashley Reeves, and I am excited to be your child's teacher this year!

I am the mother of a 9-year-old daughter, Marley, and two pets, Summer and Riley. The students will hear me talk a lot about Marley and the rest of my family because they are very important to me. They will also see Marley frequently because she will be in fourth grade at AES!

This is my 15th year teaching at Auburn Elementary. I spent my first 12 years teaching fourth grade, and this will be my third year teaching second grade. I absolutely love second grade and feel like I have found my forever home!

I grew up in Christiansburg and graduated from Christiansburg High School in 2002. After that, I attended Virginia Tech, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education in 2005 and a master’s degree in elementary education in 2007.

In my spare time, I enjoy photography, shopping, reading, traveling, watching UVA sports, and spending time with my friends and family. (Even though I attended Virginia Tech, I am a die-hard Virginia fan... it’s a long story!)

It was my dream since elementary school to become a teacher, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to fulfill that dream year after year!

Here’s to a successful 2021-2022 second grade year!
