Dear Families and Friends,

I am incredibly excited to be returning to the Queen City as the founding principal of Movement Southwest. I began my teaching career in Charlotte and after seven years serving the Brooklyn, New York community as a teacher, dean and now principal, it is such a blessing to move back to Charlotte and continue this work here.

Movement Schools exist to love and value your child. We want to see your child thrive academically, socially, and emotionally, and that work begins as early as their first day of kindergarten. This is not an opportunity we take lightly, but one that needs and deserves our commitment to you as a school community to ensure that your child has access to a phenomenal education and to feel seen, loved and heard every day. We also want your child to love learning and genuinely enjoy coming to school.

I am looking forward to getting to know your scholar and your family as a part of the Movement Community!


Ashley Baez, Founding Principal
