Meet Your Teacher



Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Ashley Dix

Hello first grade friends! My name is Miss Dix.

I am so excited to be your teacher this year! This is my fourth year teaching at Hartwood Elementary, and I cannot wait to get this year started. I grew up outside of Philadelphia (Go Eagles!) in a town called Collegeville. I continued my education at Bloomsburg University where I got my degree in Elementary Education. I began my adventures in Virginia three years ago when I moved to Fredericksburg!

As I grew up, I spent most of my time in the pool. I have been a swimmer since I was 8 years old, and also swam when I was in college. I have coached many teams, for kids of all ages. I am also an assistant swim coach at UMW this year. I love swimming, because just like school, it teaches you how to work hard, set goals, and be resilient.

This school year will be a new learning journey for all of us, but I am dedicated to making it as amazing as possible!
