My name is Ashley LoConte and I currently live in Harrison, NY with my husband and our dog.

This year is my 7th year teaching and I am teaching 5th grade ELA. I was very hesitant about the grade change in the beginning but now I couldn't imagine going back! 

Since New Jersey does not require you to have a masters to teach, this is my first masters program and I am super nervous yet eager. My school highly recommended the CDIT program since it follows their approach to teaching which I am very new to.
