My name is Ashley Gressel, I started teaching at Lackand in the 2019-2020 school year. I am from New York but the Military brought my family and I here to Texas!
In 2002, I started teaching at Lackland Elementary as a special education resource teacher, teaching 2nd-6th graders math and ELA. Since then, I have taught as an inclusion teacher in Kindergarten through 6th grades and a few more years as a resource teacher. Each year, I have also taught SFA reading to students from 2nd-6th grades. Many of these years, I have tutored students in those grades after the school day. It’s so rewarding when students learn something new and can teach it to a peer! The support system we have at Lackland with teachers-students-parents is vital to the success of student learning. Thank you, parents! I’m currently at my 43rd address, so I understand the challenges of changing home base, leaving friends behind, and making new friends.
