Ms. Ashley Diggs
Hello, my name is Ashley Diggs. I am so excited to be teaching your 3rd grader this year! This is my 5th year teaching in Harnett County Schools and my 4th year at Overhills Elementary.
I received my Master’s degree in Elementary Education in 2017. I was born and raised in Maryland. I moved to North Carolina 12 years ago. I have three beautiful children: Jose is 14, Jeovanni is 10 and Ariana is a newborn. I also have 2 dogs.
When I’m not at school, I love to spend time with my children. We enjoy going bowling, playing board games, playing cards, going to museums or watching a movie together. I love reading and learning new things!
I believe that every child has their very own unique learning style and deserves a nurturing environment with a teacher who is knowledgeable about the content they teach in order for them to reach their full potential.
As a teacher, I provide this learning environment for my students. I provide opportunities for my students to use their own natural curiosity to learn and discover new ideas and allow them to share their ideas with one another.
Children ask questions and I encourage my students to not only ask questions but also to seek out the answers to their questions. I love seeing the excitement in my students’ eyes when they learn something new, especially through self-discovery. This fosters their ability to grow into 21st century thinkers, problem solvers and adults.
I love teaching third grade!! We have a great time learning so much throughout the year!
