Ashley Wilkins – Assistant Professor, Teacher Education

Hello! I am Mrs. Ashley Wilkins. I am a full-time instructor of Teacher Education at Northern Virginia Community College.  I work closely with Karen Sheble, Program Head for Education, to help prepare students to enter into the profession of teaching.

I am a full-time faculty member at NVCC.  I graduated from Clemson University with a B.A. in early childhood education. I also completed a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction plus 30 additional hours in the areas of reading, ESOL, inquiry-based mathematics, and special education.   Before joining NVCC, I was a first-grade teacher in Prince William County. In addition, I was a lead mentor at my elementary school where we focused on supporting new teachers through coaching. I am passionate about preparing pre-service teachers for the field of education, and I also believe in the power of professional development for current teachers.

Currently, I teach at three campuses including Loudoun, Manassas, and Woodbridge.  The courses I teach include EDU 200: Foundation of Education, SDV 101: Orientation to Education, EDU 254: Basic Academic Skills for Exceptional Students, EDU 270: Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorders, and EDU 280: Technology Standards for Teachers.  I am also available to advise any education students at the Alexandria, Manassas, or Woodbridge campuses.

Please contact me if you have questions regarding field placements, course selection, advising, the field of education, or professional development opportunities at NVCC.  The best way to contact me is via email. Please schedule any appointments with me in advance. I am very happy to assist you in any way that I can.
