• Meet Mrs. Ashodian



    Welcome to my site. I thought I might share some of my background with you. I was born in Rochester and grew up in the town next door (Greece). I still live in Greece with my husband John and my  two children; Stephanie (who is twenty three) and Robbie (who is sixteen). I have been teaching in Gates Chili for 28 years. I received my undergraduate degree at SUNY Geneseo in 1990. I actually student taught right here at Neil Armstrong in Kindergarten with Mrs. Winters who has since retired. I did receive my Masters Degree in Elementary Education in 1994 from SUNY Brockport. I taught First Grade for eight years, followed by two years teaching Third Grade. I then taught Fourth Grade for ten years. For the last 8 years, I have taught 5th grade. I really love Gates Chili. In my personal time, I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, playing my flute, and spending time with my kids. During the summer, Mr. Ashodian and I like to camp and go on cruises. This summer our family took a beautiful cruise and  traveled to the Caribbean! We saw a beautiful landscape and visited many sunny beaches. Have you visited a special place? I would LOVE to know. Write me a letter and tell me about any place that you have visited. I will give 5 bonus points.
