Hello all! My name is Ashley McComas, and I am excited and proud to be the 8th grade/Math 1 teacher at Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy!
Although this is my second year at TJ, this is my 6th year teaching. I earned my teaching degree through Appalachian State (go Mountaineers!) with certifications in English/Language Arts, Science, and Mathematics. Prior to this year, I taught 7th grade, 8th grade, Math 1, and Math 2 with Rutherford County Schools. I am anxious to continue to share my love of learning and mathematics with you!!
A few snippets about me: I am married with two beautiful daughters who also attend TJ. My 3 loves in life (aside from my family, of course) are music, food, and traveling. Music is my "happy place" and I can often be found whistling, humming, or singing random verses from all genres. I've been known to rap a mathematical verse or two in class as well, so you never know what to expect! I also adore pretty much any type of food, but dill pickles are my absolute favorite! I love to travel and do so as much as my schedule allows. My goal is to continue adding new adventures and destinations every year, and hopefully I can bring back some interesting stories to share along the way!
I eagerly await meeting and getting to know each of my students and parents this year. If you need me for any reason, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I check email frequently and will respond to your email as soon as possible. Thank you for your support of our school and for choosing Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy!
