Hey everyone, I'm Ms. Ashford, and I'm super thrilled to be here with all of you! I can't wait to get to know each of you and learn together. Prior to being a tutor, I taught really cool Kindergarten and awesome third-grade students in a traditional classroom setting. In 2020, I was awarded a proclamation from the Missouri House of Representatives for my commitment to community education. I believe in making sure everyone feels included and empowered to be their most authentic selves . I love creating a place where we all appreciate each other's differences. I think every student should have a fun and fair chance to learn in a way that supports their unique learning style and interests. I love learning and exploring new things, and I believe that learning can be totally fun and exciting! While I have high hopes for all of us to learn a lot, I also believe that we can have a blast while doing it. Let's dive into the world of learning together and make it an awesome journey!
