Hello! My name is Ashley Kondo, and I am a third grade teacher at H-F Elementary. I began teaching at H-F during the 2013-2014 academic school year, and I have to say the community here is amazing! I love giving back to this community because I graduated from Hamshire-Fannett High School in 2009. In December of 2012, I graduated from Lamar University with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree earning a teaching certification ranging from Early Childhood through Sixth Grade. I teach ELAR (English Language Arts and Reading). My team teacher (Ashley Guthrie) teaches Math & Language, while my other partner teacher (Misty Pierson) teaches Science, Social Studies, & Language. We communicate well with one another and have a true passion for teaching. Our main goal for "our kiddos" is to learn to their fullest potential while having a blast!
Every year is a new challenge, and I am thrilled to see the growth and potential in each student this year. Each day, excitement fills the room when the class works together to achieve their goals. We work as a family/team. In order to accomplish a variety of goals for each student, I set high standards for them. I concentrate on creating lessons that will be engaging and interactive while reaching higher order thinking skills at the same time.
Your child is extremely important to me, and I will do my best to help your child be successful. Each student is unique and has a special gift in life; therefore, I adapt to meet their needs in order to help them find his/her special gift.
When you have any questions or concerns, I am open to communicating with you about your child at any time. Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org. School Number: 409-794-1412. Cell Number: 409-720-8718. Conference Time: 2:35-3:20
I am beyond excited for the wonderful year ahead! Thank you for your continued support.
