My name is Ashley Chardavoyne. I am originally from Ohio, but have lived in Florida for 17 years now! I have 1 beautiful daughter, Brooklyn. She is 6 years old, and I love having her here at school with me! I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my little girl. This is my 10th year teaching and my 9th at Meadowlane. I got my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from UCF and my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from American College of Education. Kindergarten is such an awesome age. The growth and changes that these little ones make throughout the year is amazing to me. I look forward to a fun and exciting year!

I started teaching in Brevard County in 1990 and moved to Meadowlane Primary in 2008. I have taught Kindergarten, TK-1, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades over the years but the majority of my career has been in TK-1. I love the program and feel strongly about giving children time to grow, explore, and just be kids. My husband and I have 5 children between us and 4 grandchildren. Most of our free time is devoted to enjoying their company and spending as much time with family as possible. I'm happy to share pictures and stories of our grandbabies whenever asked!
