In her own words…

“I am concerned with the growth of each student- intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically. I will strive to foster a feeling of self-worth, a love of learning, high standards and expectations, and an increasing responsibility for self-direction.”

In the words of others . . .

“Mrs. Cernosek has truly spent the year developing our whole child. She has literally turned Brooke’s light bulb on! She is an amazing educator who takes a personal interest in each one of her students. She acknowledges their individual needs, strengths and personalities and somehow she manages to excel at helping each child be the absolute best little person they can be.”
 Michael and Stacey Kearnes, parents of Brooke

“Ashley has inspired and shaped 5 year-olds’ minds as a kindergarten teacher at Bunker Hill Elementary for 3 years. . . . She has led her peers as team leader at a time when her leadership needed most. Three of her team members (out of five) were new this year, yet the team is functioning at a highly effective pace.”
  Bunker Hill Elementary Principal Valerie Hernandez, Ed.D.
