Ms. Ashley Diggs
Hello, my name is Ashley Diggs. I am so excited to be teaching your 3rd grader this year! This is my 4th year teaching in Harnett County Schools and my 3rd year at Overhills Elementary. I have my bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications with a focus in Journalism and my Master’s degree in Elementary Education. When I’m not at school, I love to spend time with my children. We love going bowling, playing board games, cards, or watching a movie together. I also really love to read. I am excited for this year and I know we are going to have a great year together.
Third grade is a huge transitional year for students, as they go from Satisfactory and Needs Improvement to letter grades. The expectations that start in third grade will put your child on the path for their high school graduation. I am excited to be a huge part of that transition. Students are subject to many new social skills when they start third grade, such as; having their own desks, becoming more responsible and reliable, building learned leadership, and strengthening communications skills. We have many things to learn in third grade. We will build on prior knowledge in all subjects, use writing and grammar efficiently, be given strategies of how to multiply and divide, learn and utilize test taking skills, and more importantly; become great leaders in our classroom and society.
I will treat each student with kindness and compassion and give my very best to all. I will challenge all my students to be the best version of themselves that they can be.
