About the Teachers

Sra. Ashby


I started exploring Spanish language and literature at the University of Iowa. My love of the language inspired me to study abroad in Cordoba, Argentina for one semester. After completing my BA in Spanish and International Business, I spent a summer in Salvador, Brazil learning more about South American culture and the Portuguese language. Committed to mastering the Spanish language, I decided to complete a Master’s degree in Spanish linguistics at the to University of Iowa and had the opportunity to teach undergraduate Spanish courses there for two years. I spent the 2010-2011 school year as a language and culture assistant in a bilingual elementary school in Madrid, Spain and returned to Minnesota on a mission to become a licensed teacher. I am so excited to continue teaching 6th grade at ISLA!
