Hello and welcome to Kindergarten! I am excited about this year and hope you are too. This is my seventh year of teaching and my first year at Cole. I taught fourth grade in Tennessee, Texas, and Indiana. Last year I taught in Lafayette School District. I was born and raised in Seymour, Indiana where I graduated from Seymour High School. I am a 2009 graduate of Indiana University. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten Endorsement. My belief is that learning should be a growing process. It is a place to make mistakes and learn from them. I like to encourage all students to try their best and attempt challenges.

I married Derek Lord who was raised here in Lafayette and went to McCutcheon High School and graduated from Purdue Univeristy. My husband,Derek, and I have two kiddos, Mason (6) and Hallston (3). We have lived back in Indiana for a little over a year now and it is great to be home around family. I can't wait to learn about your little ones and families. It is very important for us to stay in constant communication. If you have a question please feel free to contact me; Ashley Lord: anlord@tsc.k12.in.us or 765-523-2141.
