meet the teacher
My name is Ashley Prichard, and this is my 11th year teaching at St. Gerard. Going to school each day feels like going home. I was actually a student here K-8th grade! My first two years I taught 4th grade before switching to 3rd grade. I am a huge supporter of Love and Logic. Being able to spend each day building strong, positive relationships with students and providing meaningful learning experiences in our classroom community is truly a gift. I believe communication with parents is essential, so please don't hesitate to contact me about anything, no matter how big or small. My role as an educator is both a responsibility I take seriously and a passion I have fun with each day and pursue out of the classroom. I am proud to be a National Writing Project Teacher Consultant through the Red Cedar Writing Project, and I have received my Masters of Arts in Teaching (Curriculum & Instruction). I also run our school Book Room. Outside of school I love fantasy football, Michigan State basketball, traveling, reading, writing, and being an aunt to three wonderful nephews.
