Mrs. Ashley Volland

Hi! My name is Ashley Volland. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, endorsing in Language Arts, Reading, and Social Sciences. I recently received my Master's Degree in English as a Second Language from St. Francis University, as well as an endorsement in English as a Second Language. 

This year is going to be the start of my sixth year of teaching. Right out of college I was a guest teacher for three different school districts. My first year, I taught at John R. Tibbott in Valley View. After my first year as a kindergarten teacher, I taught at Pioneer Elementary for three years. This will be my second year teaching at Independence Elementary School.

I love helping students succeed in all that they do, which is why I truly love to teach! I am very excited to begin this school year! The successes your child will achieve will be incredible; I can guarantee it!
