Ms. Ashly Cartner

I was born in Pineville, NC. I have lived in Rock Hill all of 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 started teaching in 2013 in Chester County. This will be my second year teaching at York Road. This is my 7th year teaching and all 7 years I have taught 5th grade.  The first three years I taught was in Chester County at Great Falls Elementary and taught all core subjects.  For the last two years I taught at York Preparatory Academy where I taught ELA/Social Studies the first year and Math/Science last year. 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 single 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. Two, Hayden and Kodi live in Florida working for my mother's/papa's business (plantation shutters), and the other, Reade, is a chef living in Virginia.  I have two cats: Raye, she is a Maine coon mix, and Bynx, he is the newest addition and is a domestic short hair cat. I also have two dogs: Tucker is a Papillon and Marley is a mutt (lab retriever, hound, pointer, etc.)

I enjoy making wreaths, painting canvas' and any other craft I have time to work on. 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 fun fact about me is that I enjoy deer hunting on family property in Chester.  I also help my parents with honey bees - we average 4-6 hives at a time right now and harvest honey in late June/early July. **If you have never tasted honey straight from a bee hive you are missing out! Store bought honey is just not the same!
