In her own words: “I believe that teaching is a calling and a way of life. My friends and family always tease me, but I am always in my ‘educator mode,’ prompting those around me with questions and encouraging them to learn something new… If you don’t love what you do, you cannot be effective in changing lives. The rewards of teaching are found when your students leave your classroom and find that they no longer need you, as they can think and do for themselves.”

In the words of others: “There are many proficient and dedicated teachers in our profession. There are also teachers who, because of their commitment to education and students, must be considered outstanding. Ashley England is outstanding.” Jill Wright, Cornerstone Academy Principal

“Her pride in the events of American history and her in-depth reading of the heroes and villains that make our nation unique are the perfect combination for developing an award-winning educator. She is a tremendous asset not only to her campus, but to Spring Branch and the state of Texas.” Maurine Richter, 2008 SBISD Teacher of the Year
