My name is Ashley Wade and I have one daughter at Percy Priest Elementary – Emma who is a first grader in Mrs. Faison’s class. I have one PPE graduate, Mackenzie, who reminds her sister’s once a tiger, always a tiger. Next year, my youngest daughter Addison will be a PPE Kindergartner! I joined the PTO’s Executive Board as a way to support our local neighborhood school and give back to the place that is instilling a lifelong love of learning in my daughters. Our family’s life has been engulfed with the open arms of the Percy Priest community, the incredible staff and the encouraging environment. In my professional life, I am a former kindergarten teacher and tutor, and I am currently an active community volunteer and stay at home mom to our three daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy live music, skiing out West, Ole Miss football (Hotty Toddy), family trips to Disney World, the beach, long walks in the morning before the kids wake up and podcasts. Also, I am a native Nashvillian! My favorite PPE event is the annual spring fundraiser– I chaired the Auction in 2016 with my dear friend, Tarala Rybacki and have loved attending the parent only event to support our Tigers that always has a fun theme year after year.
