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 17th 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 2 wonderful grandchildren with one due in March. Kayden is a first grade student and Emmilee is a Pre-K 3 student here at San Augustine Elementary . As most of you know, I taught 5th grade Reading last year, but this year I am returning to my position as the 5th grade math teacher. I am very excited about this change. We are going to have a positive year with lots of great things going on in 5th grade. I am working with a great couple of ladies as my partner teachers; Mrs. Jennifer Morton and Mrs. Kay Little. We are excited to have these upcoming fifth graders and are ready to provide a quality education with a fun experience.
