Hello Families & Friends, I am Ms. Ashley. I am an Infant and Toddler Teacher with LULAC Head Start. I have been a part of the LULAC family since November 2019. I am here because I want to help each child establish a strong foundation so they can grow and develop to the best of their ability. They are the future and deserve the best start we can provide them with. I am currently in my 2nd year at Gateway Community College, majoring in Early Childhood Special Education. I have a wonderful and supportive husband with 2 smart and awesome little boys. I have 2 sweet and loving dogs. I enjoy camping, hiking, and lounging with my family. They are my joy and motivation. I firmly stand by the belief that no child gets left behind.
