She enjoys reading, playing the piano, playing games (especially Monopoly), and running. Ashley’s favorite Bible verse is Isaiah 12:2.

“I want my students to know how much Jesus loves them no matter what. I also want them to walk in the truth that they can do big things for God right now, through doing their best, being a friend to everyone, and looking for ways to share Jesus’ love with others. Academically, I want my students to fall in love with reading as it is such a wonderful way to learn about everything. I also try to look for ways to make learning engaging and fun to foster a lifelong love of learning in my students.”
