Hi! I’m Ashley! I’m an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game!, LLC. I attended Dallas Baptist University, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in History. I went on to obtain my Master’s Degree, in Instruction and Curriculum, from the University of St. Thomas. For the past several years, I have taught in public school and private schools. I also coach soccer for the private high school where I am currently teaching. Coaching has been an incredible opportunity to work with student-athletes, as I played collegiate-level soccer. From coaching on the field, to working with students academically, my goal is to always help a student reach their fullest potential.

I really enjoy working with students, because I like to give practically advice I wish teachers would have taught me in school. For example, when working on a research paper, save it in multiple places so when your computer crashes the night before its due you won’t have to pull an all-nighter to finish! It is very rewarding to be able to equip students with skills they will be able to use in and out of the classroom. I find that with dedication and lots of hard work, the hardest of tasks can be accomplished!
