Ashley Cannon

Social Studies Teacher

I was born in Turbeville, S.C.  on a farm where I worked every summer from the time I was 10 years old. I looked forward to going back to school every fall, because school was easier than farm work. I appreciate that time of my life now as I realize it taught me the value of hard work in every aspect of life. I was one of five siblings and my parents did a great job of making sure we all valued education (all five of us graduated from college). That was a big deal in the community I grew up in.

I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2000 with a B.A. in political science and in 2001 with a Masters in Teaching. My wife, Lindsey, and I live in Lexington with our three boys (Jackson-Lee, Hudson, and Graham) and we enjoy being active with our church, playing sports of all kinds and cheering on our Gamecocks.

I appreciate the opportunities SC Whitmore School provides to students who need something different than a traditional brick and mortar school. I enjoy the ability to work with students one on one and provide them with the attention they often cannot receive in a traditional classroom setting. Doing school “your way” helps meet diverse learners from different backgrounds and is one of the unique features of our school.
