Ashley Albers is teaching Special Education English Classes for 9th, 10th, and 12th grade. She is currently enrolled at the University of San Francisco, working towards her master’s degree and teacher’s credential. She was a teacher’s aide at the Morgan Autism Center in San Jose for six years and has held other positions involving therapy, such as doing ABA therapy in Oakland. Albers’ hobbies include baking and hiking in addition to hunting with her dad. She feels as though being a storyteller is her talent but she also enjoys drawing and singing. An interesting fact about her is that she wears hearing aids. She is Late-Deafened, meaning she lost hearing at the age of 18. Although she is new to WHS, Albers feels ecstatic to be working at Washington and loves the community!
