Today she lives with her husband and four kids. For the past several years Ashley has spent many hours volunteering at ELA and enjoyed it so much that she eventually decided she'd like to work there. Ashley has taught kindergarten and 1st grade. She has taught the most amazing students. She is excited for this new adventure in 5th grade. Ashley loves to travel and spent several weeks in Germany when she was in high school. She hopes to one day be able to travel more regularly and visit places all over the world. When she's not at school, she enjoys singing and playing music. She loves to cook and enjoys learning new cooking skills and trying new recipes. She also loves to read and has a difficult time putting a good book down once she picks it up. On nights when she's not driving her kids around to their different activities, or helping them with their homework, she loves to go out to dinner and see a movie.
