Ms. Ashley Thorpe
8th grade math
My name is Ashley Thorpe. I was born and raised in Mesa, and spent most of my education in the Mesa public schools. I went to Alma Elementary, Kyrene De La Mariposa, Kyrene Middle school, Rhodes Jr. high, and graduated at Dobson High School. I enrolled in the iTeach program at Arizona State University where I received my Bachelor's of Art Education.
During my last two years at ASU, I interned in the Washington School District at Royal Palm middle school and later Cholla Middle School. I have experienced 7th and 8th grade math during my years and found that I loved helping students get out of the mindset of "hating" math.
I am in my third year of teach eighth grade math and couldn't be more excited. This class will be hands-on and moved away from the tradition ways of learning math. Students' will be more confident when learning, teaching and experiencing math inside and outside of the classroom.
I got engaged in Paris,France and excited to get married in October! In my free time, I enjoy playing with my dog Beedie, spending time with my family, going to baseball games, watching performances at Gammage and playing video games with my fellow online friends. I also enjoy funny math memes, math jokes, dog jobs and husky videos.
