Kimberly Morrissey
Kimberly Morrissey
Assistant Principal

Kimberly Morrissey is thrilled to be joining the administrative staff at Ashley High School! Her education includes graduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with both her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees. After finishing her Bachelor's, she taught in London, England at the elementary level for a year which gave her a broader understanding of education outside of the United States. She also taught the Intensive Behavior Support classroom at Bellamy Elementary in New Hanover County and was most recently the Special Education Chairperson at Ashley. She loves living in Wilmington with her dog, Punkin, and on Sundays you can usually find her cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles!
