Mr. Gregory Ashby

Welcome to third and fourth grade L.E.A.P! A love of learning can be contagious, and I hope to share my love of learning with my students. We will have a wonderful year meeting your child's needs through thinking skills, academic units of inquiry, affective skills, and advanced science content.

I'm thrilled to be teaching in this district because I myself was an Army brat. With my family I was able to live around the United States as well as in Europe, which has exposed me to great cultural diversity. I love traveling and experiencing new places and things. I graduated high school not far from here, in Plato, MO, and attended Drury University in Springfield where I obtained my Bachelor's Degree of Arts in Elementary Education. After earning my degree I gained certification in Early Childhood Education and I previously taught Kindergarten in Springfield, MO. Before joining the L.E.A.P. team I taught second grade for four years at East Elementary.

School and home are part of a team with parents and teachers working closely together to ensure the best educational opportunities for your child. I feel that questions and concerns are best addressed through open and honest communication. Therefore, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. You may reach me via email anytime at:; If you would like to meet with me, please schedule an appointment in advance.

I am delighted to work with both you and your child and I expect to see a year of growth.



Mr. Ashby
