Ashley attended kindergarten through high school here at Jay. She graduated from high school in 2007 and graduated from Northeastern A&M College. She married Dylan Dysart from Grove, Oklahoma. We live on a farm approximately 10 miles east of Jay. We have cattle, 4 beagles and Ashley's horse, Misty.
I enjoy teaching at Jay Middle Schoo! One of my favorite things to do is travel! Some of my favorite places are Alaska, New York and Washington D.C. I have alot of fun attending summer camps and workshops with my fellow science colleagues (Cindi Collins and Jennifer Daftari Goldner). I like outdoor activities such as hiking, 4-wheeling and aquatic activities such as boating and kayaking. My favorite landscapes are: waterfalls, mountains and oceans. I also enjoy visiting historical landmarks, national parks and shopping at flea markets.
