Hello! My name is Ashley Oerter (Pronounced order), and I am absolutely thrilled to be your child's first grade teacher this year. I was born and raised in the Chandler area, and I love calling it my home. Growing up in Chandler and attending Chandler schools from Kindergarten-12th grade, I feel especially grateful to teach in this outstanding district. In my spare time, you can find me spending time with family and friends, playing with my puppy, drinking Dunkin' or Starbucks, or traveling.

My Education and Professional Background

Teaching is a true passion of mine, and I always knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl. I graduated from Arizona State University, a year early, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, and also earned an endorsement in Structured English Immersion. GO DEVILS! I began my teaching career as a 1st Grade teacher at Tarwater in 2014. I love being a teacher in the Toro Family!

My Educational Philosophy

I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your wonderful and unique child. I will work extremely hard to ensure that each student in my classroom experiences an environment in which he or she feels safe, respected, and ready to learn. We will have a lot of fun this year while learning, and I look forward to partnering with you in your child's education! Not only is Tarwater a family, but our classroom is a family.
