MARCH TEACHER OF THE MONTH | ASHLIE HALL
Mill Street Elementary third-grade teacher Ashlie Hall was recognized as the Lewisville Chamber/Huffines Auto Dealership March Teacher of the Month. Mrs. Hall is a proven leader to not only her 3rd-grade team but also her campus. She takes initiative and goes the extra mile to support her teammates. She wants everyone to shine, not just in her own class. As the team lead, Mrs. Hall is organized, respectful, reliable, and has built trust with her team. While she is set to be on leave soon, she has prepared specific information to help each of her students, because she truly believes that relationships come first, learning second. As a result, her students hang on her every word. Her guided reading data has specific, anecdotal notes on each child, making “next steps” seamless. She began planning for her students months ago because she wants them to continue to be successful. Mrs. Hall is a continuous learner and continues to collaborate with Instructional Coaches. To ensure student success, Mrs. Hall sets aside time for her students to create academic and personal goals each month to go over with an accountability partner. Overall, Mrs. Hall has a servant heart and a leadership spirit.
