Mrs. Ashley Fillingame


My name is Ashley Fillingame and I am so excited to have you as part of our Kindergarten community at James W. Smith this year! This is my 13th full-year teaching, and my third year in Kindergarten here at JWS. I am married and have a spunky, outdoor loving toddler boy, Parker Lee!  We live in Vanceboro and enjoy being outside, boating, swimming, and going camping! We have two dogs, a tiny little Yorkie-Poo, Sophie, and a huge Lab, Tucker!  I have loved teaching Kindergarten and my favorite parts of the day include sharing time during Morning Meeting, and watching the students grow in their personalities and confidence as the year progresses.  Kindergarten is a formative year in helping students see their potential and how fun school can be, while still being educational and rigorous!
