Welcome to Ashmore School!

Hello, my name is Robert Lynn and I am elated to be the principal of Ashmore Elementary School.

I have lived in Charleston for the past 25 years with my family. My wife, Michelle, is a LBS1 at Carl Sandburg. I have two boys, one who is a senior at EIU and another who will be a 7th grader this year at CMS.

I taught at the Charleston Middle School for 21 years as an LBS1. Last year, I was the Assistant Principal at Jefferson and Special Education Coordinator for the Charleston District. As well as being the Principal at Ashmore, I will still be serving as the Special Education Coordinator for the Charleston District as well. Along my journey, I have taken great pride in the relationships that I have built with peers, students, families, and the community. I look forward to building these relationships at Ashmore as well.

Here at AES, we strive to provide all of our students with a superior education. We pride ourselves in our welcoming family atmosphere. Our school is made up of a group of dedicated teachers and support staff who care greatly about kids. Preparing our students in all areas of their education is paramount here at Ashmore.

I would like to welcome you here to our outstanding school, and remind you that we are here to serve our students and their families. Feel free to stop by for a visit or to call us anytime during the school day at 217-349-3000 or email me at rnmlynn@charleston.k12.il.us.
