My name is Ashley Burks and I am a hometown graduate of San Augustine High School. I graduated Stephen F. Austin with my Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialty in reading and a minor in English. I am entering my 18th year as an educator. I am the mother of 3 grown children, Jeremy, Johnathon, and Courtney. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Robert Burks. I am also the very proud Gamma of 3 wonderful and beautiful grandchildren. Kayden is a first grade student and Emmilee is a Pre-K 4 student here at San Augustine Elementary, and Meela was born in March and goes to Cornerstone child care in Lufkin. As most of you know, I have taught 5th grade Math and reading in the past 3 years, but this year I am venturing out of the classroom to be the campus Math Interventionist. I am very excited about this change. I will be servicing students in grades kindergarten thru fifth grade. We are going to have a positive year with lots of great things going on at SAES. I am excited to be working with your children and am ready to provide a quality education with a fun experience.
I am also the UIL Campus Coordinator for San Augustine Elementary as well as UIL Music Memory Coach for third and fourth grade. I will be posting updates on my page to keep you updated with UIL Events and competitions. We will be competing in Shelbyville this year.
