Your Child's Teachers

  • Lead Teacher

    My name is Ashli Conrad and I am a single mother of 3 daughters;  Farris, Lillie and Mattie. Farris attends WKU, Lillie is part of the Marching Maroons and Mattie is in the 5th grade here at Pride Avenue Elementary.  I started teaching in 1997.  I taught kindergarten for two years and first grade for one year.  The rest of the time, I have taught preschool.  I have an in depth knowledge about early childhood development and of what students should experience within the preschool setting.  I love children.  I enjoy getting to know my students family.  I absolutely love my job!

    I have lived in Hopkins County all my life.  I began college here and received an Associate of Art degree from the Madisonville Community College.  I then enrolled in the 2 plus 2 program and attended Western Kentucky University classes locally to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  When MCC joined with Murray State University, I went on to earn my Master's Degree in Guidance and Counseling.  We are very fortunate to live a community that supports education at every level.
