Ashly Bolus

I was born in Pineville, NC. I have lived in Rock Hill all my life. I attended York Road and Richmond Drive for elementary school, Rawlinson Road and Sullivan for middle school and Rock Hill High for high school. I attended Winthrop University for my Bachelor's degree and received my Master's Degree from Western Governors University. I started teaching in 2013 in Chester County. This will be my sixth year teaching at York Road. This is my 11th year teaching overall and all 11 years I have taught 5th grade. I taught 3 years in Chester County at Great Falls Elementary, 2 years at YPA, and going into my 6th year at York Road. My favorite thing about teaching and working in a school is how every single year is different, because every student is different. I look forward to making new relationships every year. I have a lifelong learner mentality, and each and every student that I encounter in my class teaches me something new. My parents still live in Rock Hill. I also have identical triplet siblings that are three years younger than me. I have two cats: Raye and Bynx. I also have three dogs: Tucker, Marley, and Kimber. My husband's name is Timothy Bolus, and he works with a logging company. My husband and I are both volunteer firefighters with the Lesslie Fire Department. The beach is one of my favorite places to go, but traveling is something that in general makes me happy! I am a die-hard Clemson fan. Football season is the best season! Go Tigers!! A few fun facts about me include: that I enjoy deer hunting/fishing/farming on family property in Chester, helping my parents with honeybees (**If you have never tasted honey straight from a beehive you are missing out! Store bought honey is just not the same!), and I am coming up on 3 years being with the Lesslie Fire Department where I absolutely enjoy participating in trainings and going on calls to help those in need. I have 2 children, Hadley (will be 2 in September) and Easton (born last February). They are my WORLD!
