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.
I’m originally from Phoenix Arizona and I love the southwest desert heat. I’m married and have two wonderful children. I enjoy reading, gardening and explain the wonderful city of San Antonio. I have a bachelors in elementary education and special education as well as a masters in math and science curriculum and instruction.
I’ve been at Lackland since 2010. During that time and enjoyed some unique opportunities. I’ve had the pleasure of working with students in kindergarten all the way up to six grade.
