Vickie Wheatley is our lead Pre-Kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Wheatley graduated from Portland State University with a degree in Social Science. For the last 21 years, she taught Kindergarten at Ashbrook. Before joining the AIS community, she was always in the capacity of working with children and education.
“I am a lifelong learner and continue to hone my craft with ongoing professional development in the sciences, math, language arts, geography, music… and yes, even gardening. Pre-Kindergarteners have a special place in my heart. They come in eager to learn and are easy to wow. Their first experience of being a student is exciting and always full of surprises. I am so lucky to help mold these young children’s lives to be the best they can be and they never cease to meet the challenge.”
In her free time, Mrs. Wheatley enjoys spending time with her family and preferably doing something outdoors.
This is Mrs. Wheatley’s 22nd year at Ashbrook Independent School.
