Teacher of the Year
2017-2018
Mrs. Ashley Ricci

Oakley is SO LUCKY to have Mrs. Ricci as our art teacher!  She does the most amazing art projects with our kids and they absolutely love her.  Mrs. Ricci is shared between two schools, Oakley and Barnardsville Elementary.  She graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi and also attended the University of Tennessee.  She taught 4th grade for 4 years in Charlotte, NC before moving to Asheville.  She started at Oakley teaching 3rd grade for 1 year before moving to the art room.  She has created some beautiful murals and student art displays around the building.  Our school is a much more beautiful place because of Mrs. Ricci.
