Ashley Channon

My name is Mr Channon and I am now in my fifth year of teaching at Carden. Before training as a teacher, I worked for 6 years in a SEND school as a teaching assistant, which gave me my thirst for helping children to thrive and learn. At Carden, I taught in Year 4 for 2 Years and I am now in my third year of teaching wonderful Year 6’s. My favourite things about teaching Year 6 is the brilliant topics that we get to explore, including World War Two, and the great trips we get to go on.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family. I have a son who is three, who just loves going on muddy adventures and exploring new places. We are both adrenaline junkies, so we love finding places with exhilarating rides, especially rollercoasters! I like to challenge myself to cook and explore different cuisines. I love cooking because it makes me relaxed and it allows me to switch off. My favourite things to cook are risotto and laksa.
