1st Grade Team
Mrs. Ashley Boyle
Hello my name is Ashley Boyle and I teach 1st Grade at Hawking 2. I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. I graduated from The University of Washington in 2009 with a degree in Psychology. After finishing my undergraduate degree I spent time living in Alaska, Hawaii, and back home in Washington. In 2014 I moved to San Diego to complete my Masters in Education and Curriculum Design from The University of San Diego. I love to ski, hike, and camp. As a teacher I believe strongly in the infinite potential of all my students. In my classroom we focus on hard work as the path to academic excellence. I feel fortunate to be at Hawking teaching the future scientists who will clean up our oceans and engineer clean energy solutions.

Ms. Adriana Navarro
Hi! My name is Adriana Navarro, I am excited to join the community at Hawking 2! I grew up in San Diego and afterwards attended the University of California, Irvine. I received two B.A. degrees in Psychology and Social Behavior and Educational Sciences. I completed my teaching credential at San Diego Teacher Residency Program through High Tech High and I am currently working towards my M.Ed in Educational Leadership.
My goal as a teacher is to foster empathy, and create positive relationships with one another. I am incredibly excited to teach first grade because of the immense growth that happens throughout this year! I am also eager to teach students through hands-on learning and a S.T.E.A.M focused curriculum. When I am not in the classroom I am traveling, trying new food, and spending time with my two dogs.

Ms. Jennifer Abramczyk
Hello, my name is Jennifer Abramczyk and I am excited to teach 1st grade at Hawking STEAM 2. I grew up in Arizona and moved to San Diego in 2010 when I began my undergraduate studies at University of California San Diego where I majored in Cognitive Science with a minor in Psychology and graduated in 2014 with my Bachelor’s of Science Degree. I then continued my education at the University of San Diego receiving my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Elementary Education along with my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I love working with young students because of their daily enthusiasm to learn and discover new things! My goal as a teacher is to create a comfortable, safe learning environment to constantly challenge my student’s minds to think deeper and learn about the world around them. When I am not in the classroom, I am often outdoors, camping, biking, hiking and swimming.
