"Ashley is a patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging Spanish professor. I’ve had roughly fifteen different Spanish instructors over the course of four years of study and Ashley easily stands out as one of the most competent and fun to work with. I studied under Ashley in 2006 at the University of Washington as a low-intermediate level student. Since then, I have lived in Mexico for nearly two years, worked in Spanish-speaking environments, and studied Mexican Literature at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) in Mexico City. Ashley was the last instructor I had stateside before living abroad and she did what all good language teachers do – taught me a few grammatical things and exposed me to new cultural and historical events. But more importantly, Ashley helped prepare me for the thousands of difficult, confusing, and awkward conversations that lay ahead and to stick with it. Teaching a foreign language is hard. Ashley does it as well as anyone I’ve worked with. Sinceramente, Jonathan"
