Ashley Van Noppen is a new member of the Wise family and is very excited about joining the First Grade team this year. Mrs. Van Noppen has spent the last five years teaching in Durham, North Carolina, where she received her Masters in Education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and certification as a Reading Specialist. She enjoys working with her first grade students, and their families, as they develop as readers, writers, and critical thinkers.
When not spending time with her students, Mrs. Van Noppen enjoys taking time with her new husband to explore all the exciting adventures Los Angeles has to offer. She is a movie fanatic, avid reader, and adventurous eater. She is thrilled to be joining the Wise community.
