My name is Ashley Carver, and I am a 9th Grade English teacher at McDowell High School. I am originally from McDowell County, and I attended McDowell High School as a student. Upon graduation from MHS, I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in English with a concentration in Secondary Education. I began teaching at East McDowell Junior High School in 2008, and I have been a part of the Titan Academy since its opening in 2014. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and working with 9th grade students. I believe that all students have the potential to do well and to be successful in school. It is my goal to help students prepare for future high school and college level courses.
