Bio

My name is Ashly Johnston and I teach English 11, ACT Prep, and Mass Media at Sparkman. In addition to these teaching responsibilities, I also co-sponsor Student Government Association. I have been teaching full-time for four years and have spent all of this time at Sparkman. I love the diversity represented at this school, and truly believe we have the best students in Madison County!

 

Although, I have lived in Alabama for over 9 years now, I'm still an Okie at heart. I graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism &Public Relations. BOOMER SOONER! I love my alma mater and have no shame representing here in SEC country. I also hold a Master's Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis on English. I am currently working on my Ed. S. in Administrational Leadership. I am continuously on a quest for knowledge and have a passion for learning. My teaching assignments allow me to share my knowledge regarding each of the things I hold dear and I am grateful for such an opportunity. My favorite author to teach is Edgar Allen Poe. I took a class on his works and he fascinates me.

 
I am married to my junior high sweetheart, Greg, and we have three children - Camden, 9; Avery Mae, 7; and Sawyer "JoJo", 2. They keep us on our toes! In my minimal free time I enjoy lifting weights, playing golf, reading historical fiction, and playing board games with my children. I also like to travel and I am always down for a good road trip!
