Ms. Ashley Gans
Hi all! My name is Ashley Gans, and I am so excited about beginning my teaching career at ISA! As a Trinity Master of Arts in Teaching Intern, I had the pleasure of interning with Mr. Jesus Cantu last Spring, as well as serving as a chaperone for the Sophomore New Mexico Travel Experience! It is an honor to now be on the staff of such a welcoming and unique community!
For undergrad, I attended Southern Methodist University (SMU), where I majored in Mechanical Engineering and minored in Math and German. My love for math and science mixed with my passion for working with and learning from young people led me to pursue my Master of Arts in Teaching from Trinity University.
Although I have been in Texas for the past 5 years, I am originally from Ocala, FL (feel free to ask me about some fun facts). I moved to Dallas for college, and once my family moved to Houston, I officially became a Texas transplant! My Florida roots, however, give me a strong love of theme parks (especially Disney) and probably a little too much comfort around alligators. I am so grateful to be in San Antonio and am excited to explore more about what the city has to offer! Some of my passions/hobbies include exploring new places, playing soccer/ultimate frisbee, summer camp, kayaking, playing guitar, and spending time with people who value and support me.
I am also a Fellow in the Knowles Teaching Fellowship. The five-year fellowship program for STEM teachers provides me with the opportunity to learn from a network of experienced teachers that will hone and develop my content knowledge, teaching practices, and teacher leadership skills. I am excited to bring what I learn from the Fellowship into the classroom to cultivate a community of inquiry-minded, empathetic mathematicians.
