Please welcome Ms. Andrea Ashcroft to the Burton Street Elementary School!
Ms. Andrea Ashcroft is excited to join the Burton Street team as a 4th grade teacher this year. Ms. Ashcroft earned her BA in Psychology and Sociology from Iona College, and her MST in Childhood Education from SUNY Potsdam. She completed her student teaching at Remsen Elementary School, and prior to pursuing her master’s degree, Ms. Ashcroft worked as a Teaching Assistant in the Holland Patent School District for several years.
“I’m excited to move forward in a career that is so rewarding,” she says. “Two of my grandparents were teachers, and when I was younger, I would get to see their former students recognize and chat with them – it really showed me what a lasting positive impact teachers can have. They continue to inspire me to have that positive connection with my students.”
Outside of school, Ms. Ashcroft shares that she enjoys spending time with family, kayaking throughout the Adirondacks, attending local music and arts events, and all sorts of crafting and DIY projects. She is looking forward to getting to know the Cazenovia community.
