Hi my name is Michelle Ash. I am a lifelong resident of Cleveland, GA and this is my twentieth year teaching fifth grade students for the White County School System. Over all those years I’ve evolved my teaching to incorporate a kinesthetic learning approach for math, and reading. It may make me look like the class clown when I get up to rap and dance, but for me, it’s the movement and music that I use as a tool to teach the complex concepts. I think that my students would agree we all have a really good time learning. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have two sons. When I’m not with my students, I am sharpening my sporting clay skills, fishing for trout in the North Georgia Mountains, or playing classical guitar.
