AshleyPrestonNHTOY2016 (1)

 

It is very rare for a pre-school teacher to be selected as a state Teacher of the Year, but New Hampshire educator Ashley Preston did exactly that.

 

Join Anthony Arno on The New Teacher Podcast as he talks with Ashley about the importance of pre-school teachers, who she insists are more than just daycare providers.  Ashley tells about her decision to take a break before beginning law school to work in a classroom support position, where she instantly caught the teaching bug.  Ashley also tells about her role with Child Find in the Manchester School District.
