Favorite Teacher Becomes a Podcaster?

I had Ashley my sophomore year in high school and she was easily one of my favorite teachers. As a college student studying education, I’m really excited to see what experiences she has to help through mine!

I could seriously listen to Ashley talk all day! You can hear the passion for teaching in her voice and I just know she’s going to continue to give us an open and honest view into her life. Keep up the good work!!
