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 thrid 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.
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.
