Ms. Ashley and Mrs. Jessica

My Name is miss Ashley and I lead the elementary program at B’nai Israel Community Day school. This is my fourth year leading the elementary program, and my sixth year teaching at B’nai Israel Community Day school. Some of my classroom strengths include diverse teaching strategies for different learners, creating multi intelligent lessons, and blending lessons to cover multiple subjects, skills and standards in one. We do a lot of hands-on tactile learning through exploration in class. I have a first-grader who went through all of the preschool classrooms here at B’nai Israel. In our free time we like to take trips to the beach. In my free time, I like to run and also go to Orange theory fitness. I plan to run the New York City Half Marathon for my birthday in the spring of 2021.



My name is Mrs. Jessica, and I am so excited to be working with your children this year in the Elementary program! I was born and raised in Gainesville and got my undergraduate degree in Family, Youth & Community Sciences at UF. I have wanted to be an Elementary school teacher since Kindergarten because I had a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Stanley! Working with children has been my passion ever since. I have 12 years of experience working with children ages 8 weeks to 13 years old. This is my second year teaching here at B’nai and I am so excited for this school year!
