Hello, my name is Ashley Manning, and I am an Educational Technology student at ASU. Not an Arizona native, I grew up in Michigan. I earned my undergraduate degree at Eastern Michigan University, in secondary mathematics education. In 2007, after my second year of teaching, I decided I had had enough of the cold winters and decided to head out West . That brings me to where I work now, in my sixth year of teaching at Paradise Valley High School. In the winter of 2008, I started the Educational Technology program at ASU, and am currently in my last semester! Upon graduation, I hope to transition into some aspect of corporate training. Also, I love being outside in the beautiful Arizona weather, usually hiking or running!
