About Mrs. Hartowicz


Hello!  My name is Ashley Hartowicz and I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher for the 2018-2019 school year!  I grew up in Carmel, Indiana and attended Carmel Clay Schools all throughout my childhood.  I graduated from Ball State University in December of 2007 with a dual degree in Elementary Education and Special Education: Mild Interventions.

My first experience with Carmel Clay Schools began in the fall of 2007 when I student taught in 2nd grade at Forest Dale Elementary.  My first year at West Clay was the 2008-2009 school year, where I was a 2nd grade instructional assistant.  That same year, I was fortunate enough to experience a short-term position as a kindergarten teacher and another one as a 4th grade teacher, both at WCE.  Since landing my first full time teaching contract in 2009; I have taught 5th grade, 3rd grade, 1st grade, and now 2nd grade. The 2018-2019 school year will mark my tenth year as a full-time teacher.

My husband and I got married on December 19, 2009.  We have two beautiful red headed girls named Heidi and Natalie. Heidi is 5 years old and will attend kindergarten at WCE this school year.  Natalie is 2 years old and attends Edu-care.  We also have a beagle/chocolate lab named Penny.  When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, writing, decorating, working out, pilates, yoga, walking, gardening, and playing with my girls. I am excited to be in 2nd grade, and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
