Ms. JeLisa Ashby
My name is JeLisa Ashby, and I am a native of Charlotte, NC. I obtained my degree from Claflin University in Orangeburg, SC. I have been a memeber of the JPES family since 2016. I am a 5th grade ELA teacher. I aim to not only expand the literary minds of my kids, but their future well-being as people as well. I am the mentor over the Young Entrpreneurs Guild club here at Pye. My motto is, "Why get a job, when you can create one yourself?" In my spare time, I love maintaing my small business (all natural skin care line), cooking, traveling, and reading. I am passionate about teaching and watching young minds grow. I will leave you with my favorite quote pertaining to education, by William Butler Yeats, "Teaching is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire".
-Love Ms. Ashby
