• Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I want to take the time to introduce myself as your child’s English teacher and to invite you to contact me any time throughout the school year.  I am thrilled to teach your child literature this year.

    This is my twelfth year in education, and my fifth year at Western Guilford High School.  I have the pleasure of teaching English III, which is a focus on American Literature.  I love reading and teaching American Literature; it is my favorite!

    I am a native of Greensboro, NC.   I am a proud Eagle of NC Central University; I studied English Literature and Political Science while there.  In 2010, I graduated from NC A&T State University with a master’s degree in English and African-American Literature.  

    Teaching is something that I take very seriously.  It is my job to prepare your child for life after high school by developing skills through English class.  I set high and attainable expectations for all of my students. I want them to succeed in my class and in life.  As your child’s parent or guardian, I know that you desire the same thing. Please let me know of anything that will assist me in providing your child with a great year in English. Also, please read over the syllabus and sign the form stating that you are aware of the expectations and policies for my class this school year.  

    While I am not teaching or preparing lessons, I enjoy attending concerts, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, and watching football or basketball.

    Best Wishes,

    Ashley S. LeSane
