Mrs. Ashley Christie
About Mrs. Christie: I was born and raised in Alpharetta, Georgia. I absolutely LOVE teaching! It is all I have ever wanted to do. My mom and grandmother were both teachers, and my mother and sister in laws are teachers too! I have 4 amazing kiddos of my own and 20 amazing kiddos I share with you! Trevor is 14, Jack is 13, Payton is 8 (9 on Thursday), and the craziest Aly turned 4 in June. My husband, Kenny owns his own construction management company. We love the beach and go to Destin as much as we possibly can! We even lived in Panama City Beach for a few months when Aly was 6 months. We just moved to the Chapin area at the end of June. I am so excited to be living so close to the lake!
