Mrs. Ansley Choate
My name is Ansley Choate, and I am honored to have the priviledge of working with special needs children. I graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and later received a masters degree from The University of West Georgia in the same field. I taught 2nd grade at Taylorsville Elementary for 8 years and loved every minute in the classroom. After giving birth to my second child, I decided to change hats from teacher to stay at home mom. I spent the next 14 years with my daughters, Claire and Juliana. Claire graduated from Cartersville High School in 2017 and has just returned to Athens to begin her sophomore year at the University of Georgia. Juliana is a senior at Cartersville High School, and I remain hopeful that she might decide to be a CLEMSON TIGER! My husband, Jay, and I are both natives of Cartersville and have been married for 22 years.
I returned to the classroom in 2012 when I was given the opportunity to fill a longterm substitute position in the self-contained classroom at CPS. I fell in love with the children immediately! I decided then that this was my calling in life and became certified to teach in the field of special education.
This is my fifth year as the self-contained classroom teacher, and I absolutely love my job! I am grateful for the assistance of my wonderful paraprofessionals, La’Toya Bray and Mary Mullinax! My job would not be possible without them!
I am grateful to all the parents who have entrusted me with their precious children! Every day spent with these little ones is a blessing; they are the highlight of my day, and I love them dearly!
