Tina Welch is our lead Preschool teacher. She earned her degree and a teaching credential at California State University, Long Beach. She taught both 4th and 2nd grade in California before moving to Oregon with her husband and son.
Mrs. Welch started as the Extended Day Assistant at Ashbrook, which allowed her time to substitute teach in the Pre-K classroom. She quickly decided she loved working with that age group. The following year, she became the teacher’s assistant and worked in that position for 3 years.
“I am looking forward to all the fun and learning that is going to take place next year. I have many plans in place to make sure the children have a wonderful Preschool experience.”
In her free time, Mrs. Welch enjoys taking leisurely hikes and going to the coast or Portland. She also loves watching the Beavers play football and baseball. She and her husband attend as many home games as they can.
This is Mrs. Welch’s 5th year with Ashbrook Independent School.
