As the first day of the new school year draws closer, so does the first day of teaching for the newest crop of educations from the Golden Apple Accelerators Program. One of those new teachers is Ashley Tyler who will be teaching 2nd and 3rd grade special education at the Dennis Lab School in Decatur. She has been a paraprofessional in the past, but this will be a new experience and she can’t wait to have the students in the classroom.
Between mask mandates and so many other things, it’s a tough time for an outsider looking in on schools. That isn’t going to stop Tyler who is extremely proud to teach at Decatur Public Schools.
Tyler was a part of Golden Apple’s inaugural Accelerators program.
