Ashley is thrilled to join the wonderful people at Chicago Children's House. She started teaching 0-5 year olds about 5 years ago as a Gymboree Play & Music teacher, teaching Music, Play & Learn, and School Skills classes. After Gymboree, she was a nanny, and then a Teacher's Assistant in 3-5 year old classroom.
Ashley has a B.A. in Theater from the University of Notre Dame with a Minor in Anthropology. While in college she worked with an ND Outreach program that brought workshops to local schools. She just completed her Masters of Fine Arts in Classical Acting from the University of Houston where she helped build curriculum for a local Children's Museum. She loves little ones for their large imaginations and their ever-growing curiosity about the world around them. Children have the capacity to remind us of the little joys everyday.
