Angie Ashley new math instructional supervisor

Ms. Ashely started working at Fauquier County Public Schools as a fifth grade teacher in 1995.
Fauquier’s school board approved the hiring of a new math instructional supervisor Monday.

Angie Ashley, 47, on July 1 will fill the position currently held by Jane Grove, who will retire.

Ms. Ashley will supervise the school system’s math programs and teachers, among other responsibilities.

“I have served in a lot of different capacities in the county, and I hope that I can use a lot of these experiences to continue moving math forward in the county,” Ms. Ashley said.

She currently works as an elementary lead teacher, providing mathematics support to four elementary schools — Grace Miller, C. Hunter Ritchie, Greenville and P.B. Smith.

Ms. Ashley will earn $80,000 annually in her new position.

“I see the passion that she has for mathematics and value her vision for how we can re-imagine the kinds of experiences that our kids will have in mathematics classrooms,” said Associate Superintendent for Instruction Major Warner.

“She has a proven track record and will be a tremendous resource for our teachers and schools,” Mr. Warner added.

The Tennessee native was inspired by her grandmother to become a teacher.

“She was one of my favorite people of all time, so I went into education because she said I would be good at it,” Ms. Ashley said.

She first started working for Fauquier County Public Schools as a fifth grade teacher in 1995.

From 2000 to 2012, Ms. Ashley served as an instructional technology resource teacher in six elementary schools throughout the county and then taught first grade for one year.

She began work as a mathematics specialist at Grace Miller Elementary in 2013.

Ms. Ashley earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from George Mason University.

She spends her free time running, reading, and playing wallyball. She also enjoys spending time with family — husband, Rick, and her two adult children, Calvin and Caitlin.

Congratulations Angie Ashley. I am happy to see that the job expectations include "Facilitates program/curriculum development and monitoring". I hope that with a new person in the position that there will be an increase in the monitoring of high school level math curriculum. Both of my sons have encountered an incomplete implementation of "flip" learning in advanced math, one in Math Analysis and one in Honors Geometry. The flip learning technique is a terrific method if fully implemented, unfortunately my sons experienced teaching approaches that were not true flip learning. I spoke with Major Warner when my first son was at KRHS and had lengthy emails with Mr. Malloy for my second son's experience. Nothing every came of the discussions (even though the teacher and head of the KRHS math dept were supposed to set up a meeting with me... I regret letting that drop). I have been told that Math Analysis is still taught using the "Flip" method by at least one teacher. If my son has that teacher and the Flip method is incomplete and therefore an insufficient approach to teaching math, then I know who to contact. Ideally, this teacher will correctly use the Flip method and then he/she can help the other teachers understand how it should be used and I will not have to discuss anything with anyone.
