Ashley Heath, Middle School Math Teacher
How long have you been at ESD?
This is my first year.
What's your favorite class or project?
"The project where we connect slope to real-life experiences. We will be discussing the rate at which tanks fill and lose water and how that impacts slope."
What's your favorite spot on campus?
"Anywhere I can look at the Quarry or where the breeze blows through the trees."
What's your favorite candy or sweet treat?
"I love a good cup of coffee or Reese's cup."
Did you always know you wanted to be a teacher?
"I always knew I wanted to work with kids. I was always decent at math but had to work hard to be really good at it, so I understood what working hard looked like in math. I love how every day is the same but also different, and seeing students grow is the best. There is always a reason to laugh as a teacher!"
"I lived in Asia for 2.5 years."
"I love baking."
What do you love about ESD?
"It really is a true community."
What's 1 tip you would give to students?
"Slow down, process, and ask for help when you need it. Push yourself outside of your comfort zone."
