Ms. Ashley O'Neal
I am Ashley O’Neal. I am a very energetic, goofy, and outgoing educating leader. I teach 2nd grade but have been teaching at Candlewood since 2020. Before starting public schooling, I taught HeadStart at Parent Child Inc for two and a half years.
I am from West Helena, Arkansas. I attended the magnet program DATA (Design And Technology Academy) at Theodore Roosevelt in San Antonio, TX., and have a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies, from Texas A&M University San Antonio. I am certified in EC-6th General Education and am working on my Masters degree in Educational Leadership. I should be graduating in May 2024. My professional goal is to become an athletic director at the college level. I am very proud of my attendance. I was awarded perfect attendance for PreK through 12th grade.
In my free time, I train kids in basketball starting at the age of 4 the fundamental skills and abilities to be a leader. I coached 4th and 5th-grade boys on an AAU team called AAO. I love to play basketball in adult leagues such as women's or co-ed. I also love spending time and traveling with my family. I have a 6-year-old daughter, Genesis, that I love to play and have fun with.
