Dear Ashland Elementary School Community,


I am honored to introduce myself as Ashland Elementary School’s new principal. I am looking forward to getting to know all of our students, families, and staff over the coming weeks. I am committed to supporting Ashland’s vision of providing a kind, creative, safe, hard-working, and fun culture to ensure all students learn to their fullest potential.


I am fortunate to have served in Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) over the past 15 years. My teaching experience includes kindergarten and third grade at Potomac View Elementary School, and my leadership roles include serving as an intervention specialist at Swans Creek Elementary School, administrative intern at Kerrydale Elementary School, and most recently, assistant principal at Signal Hill Elementary School. Prior to joining PWCS, I had the opportunity to teach overseas.


I hold a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Illinois State University, and my master’s in leadership from George Mason University.

All of these experiences have reaffirmed my dedication to doing what is best for our school community.


It is important to me that our children always know they are safe, valued, and loved at Ashland Elementary. Just like my Ashland family, my own family is very important to me. My husband John and I have two children. We enjoy spending time outdoors, especially hiking and camping.


I will be scheduling meet and greet opportunities very soon so I can get to know you better. Together, we will SOAR higher.



Anna Houseworth

Shana Robinson, Assistant Principal
