Earning her BA in Sociology from the University of Washington and MA in Teaching from City University Bellevue, Ashley Thielman provides a supportive and nurturing classroom environment for her young students. A well-experienced early childhood educator, Ashley’s approach to Pre-K was shaped by eight years of teaching Kindergarten in a private school in Spokane, before she joined the GHA faculty in 2016. Recognizing the importance of fostering individuality, Ashley creates a collaborative and engaging setting where learning is deepened through a variety of hands-on projects and engagement with nature. In addition to a lead teacher, Ashley is also a proud parent of a GHA alum and elementary student.
