Welcome to our class website! Here you will find our assignment calendar and newsletters, as well as helpful links.
My name is Ashley Herden, and this is my first year teaching at Highland Elementary. I previously taught for five years at Power APAC, a magnet school for academically and artistically gifted students in Jackson, MS and for 9 years at Madison Station Elementary.
I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education from Millsaps College in Jackson, MS.
I am certified to teach K-6 Elementary (all subjects), Reading (grades K-12), and Social Studies (grades 7-12).
I am a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of Early to Middle Childhood Literacy.
My husband, Ian, and I have one eleven-year-old daughter named Emma Grace, who will start sixth grade this year at Madison Middle! When I'm not teaching or doing something teaching-related, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, shopping, and reading. I am looking forward to a great year with your child in fifth grade!
